Korea is suffering from a rising number of deaths related to COVID-19 with the country being hit by the third wave of infections for almost a month.
According to the KDCA (Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency), the country added 1,014 more COVID-19 infections for Wednesday
, raising the total caseload to 46,453, after reporting 1,078 infections the day before.This is the first time that the nation's virus cases have surpassed the 1,000 mark for the second day in a row.
This satisfies the conditions for Level 3 social distancing rules ― the highest level under the government's five-tier system ― to be imposed. Level 3 should be imposed when the daily number of local infections stands at between 800 and 1,000, or the daily tally doubles from the previous day, according to a previous announcement by the administration.
But the government has yet to make a decision, apparently being mindful of economic damage that the toughest antivirus measure would cause to small business owners.
The KDCA said the administration is carrying out in-depth discussions with local governments and experts to decide on whether to adopt Level 3, noting that there has been advice that most stores excluding essential ones such as pharmacies and supermarkets should be closed, and that indoor dining at restaurants should be banned.( Collapse )( Collapse )Sources
