Today (the 6th), the sixth day of the gradual recovery, the number of new confirmed cases of Corona 19 recorded the mid-2,200 level, maintaining the 2,000 level for four days in a row.
The Central Defense Response Headquarters announced that as of 00:00 on the same day, there were 2,248 new confirmed cases, bringing the total to 277,712.
The risk of infection transmission continues to grow due to the step-by-step recovery from the 1st of this month.
In a step-by-step recovery system, the government is planning to focus more on the number of patients with severe cases than on the number of simple confirmed cases.
However, the number of patients with severe gastritis has recently increased.
On this day, 411 people were seriously ill, an increase of 29 from the previous day.
The government believes that less than 500 critically ill patients can be managed stably in the current medical system, but in preparation for an increase in the number of confirmed cases, an administrative order was issued to secure additional beds at medical institutions in the metropolitan area the day before.
The number of deaths is also 20 as of 00:00 on that day, with a cumulative total of 2,956.
