October 29 According to Korean media reports, the Central Anti-pandemic Countermeasures Headquarters of the Korean Disease Management Agency stated that as of 0:00 local time on the 29th, South Korea had newly confirmed 125 new cases of Coronavirus compared with the previous day, and a total of 26,271 confirmed cases.
As sporadic clusters of infections continue to occur, the Korean epidemic prevention authorities have decided to strengthen inspections of relevant business premises.
According to the report, in addition to convalescent facilities and hospitals where susceptible groups are concentrated, cluster infections that began at gatherings of relatives and friends, schools, and workplaces are also continuing to occur. Coupled with the potential risk of infection that may be caused by Halloween this weekend, the epidemic situation is still not optimistic.
To this end, the City of Seoul will dispatch full-time personnel to focus on checking whether the public abides by the checklist, wearing masks and other epidemic prevention rules, centering on restaurants around Itaewon. If violations are found, administrative penalties will be imposed.
South Korea’s Central Disaster Safety Countermeasures Headquarters stated that the epidemic is still severe and calls on the public to continue to be vigilant and try not to go to crowded places this weekend to avoid large-scale cluster infections.
