Personally, about 9,760 people across the country have been arrested for violating various epidemic prevention rules.
6,043 were arrested for violating the curfew, and 3,717 were arrested for not wearing a mask.
During the same period, 256 bars were closed for violating health and epidemic prevention regulations, and 463 cars were impounded.
