The number of severe cases of Corona 19 recorded the highest number again today (12th).
The number of new confirmed cases is in the mid-2,300 range, exceeding the 2,000 line for the third day.
The Central Quarantine Countermeasures Headquarters announced that as of 00:00 today, there were 2,368 new confirmed cases, bringing the total number of confirmed cases to 39719.
The number of new confirmed cases is 152 fewer than yesterday (2,520), but the number of new confirmed cases has greatly exceeded 2,000 for the third day since the 10th (2,425).
With the gradual recovery of daily life that started on the 1st, the number of confirmed cases is increasing as quarantine guidelines have been eased and social activities, movement, and gatherings have increased.
In particular, there is concern that the scale of the spread may increase as we enter winter, which is favorable for virus activity and difficult to ventilate.
The number of cases of severe severe cases was recorded again today.
On the 10th, 460 people were counted, the highest number since the domestic Corona 19 epidemic.
In the past week (11.6-13), the number of patients with severe severe disease by day shows an increasing trend from 411 → 405 → 409 → 425 → 460 → 473 → 475.
There is also a forecast that if the key quarantine indicators for the phased recovery of daily life continue to deteriorate at the current trend, the implementation of the second phase of daily recovery scheduled for the middle of next month will become difficult.
Due to the increase in the number of severe cases, the number of deaths is also increasing by double digits every day.
There were 18 deaths yesterday, bringing the total number of deaths to 3,51.
The average fatality rate is 0.78%.
