(SOUTH KOREA) #Coronavirus Report: Seoul posted its highest ever number of new daily #COVID19 infections within 24 hours, the Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency has said, in a third consecutive day of record high new infections #AceHealthDesk report

#AceHealthReport – July.11: Starting on Monday, #coronavirus curbs will be tightened to the strictest level possible in Seoul and neighbouring regions for the first time:

#CoronavirusNewsDesk says that Seoul is preparing for strictest measures and lockdown starting on Monday after the country reported 1,378 new #COVID19 cases as of midnight on Friday, up from Thursday’s record of 1,316 and rising for the first time in neighbouring regions with about 11% of 52 million people having completed vaccination, including receiving both shots for vaccines requiring two doses, while 30% have received one dose, KDCA said in a statement according to Telegram Reuters Wire report

South Korea has so far fared better than many industrialised nations in infections and deaths, with a mortality rate of 1.22% and the number of severe cases at 148 as of Friday, which is much lower than the previous peak in late December.

However the rising trend has prompted a warning that new case numbers may nearly double by the end of July.

That has led to tougher curbs by the government including people being advised to stay home as much as possible and social gatherings restricted to two people after 6pm from four earlier in the day.

The country aims to reach herd immunity before November by inoculating 70% of the public with at least one shot by September.

South Korea’s total Covid-19 infections to date stand at 166,722 with 2,038 deaths.

The Delta variant is responsible for a growing wave of new cases in the region, which had previously managed the pandemic with some success, and the slow pace of vaccinations in countries including South Korea, Australia and Thailand is causing concern.
