All the flower shops in a row were closed.

A cluster infection of Corona 19 occurred at a flower wholesale market in Seoul Express Bus Terminal.

Since the first case on the 25th, it was confirmed that about 40 people, including employees and customers, were infected.

For quarantine management, the shopping mall has decided to close until the 7th of the next month.

At a nursing hospital in Gangbuk-gu, Seoul, the cumulative number of patients reached 19 within three days of the first confirmed case on the 26th.

The number of new confirmed cases seemed to have stabilized at the 1,000 level since the 8th, but as this group infection continues, it is recording the 2,000 level for three days in a row.

As quarantine measures were eased from the 18th, anticipation for the recovery of daily life increased, and the quarantine tension seems to have eased.

As a result, social contact has increased and the weather is getting colder and indoor activities have increased as the cause of the spread of infection.

There is also a forecast that up to 5,000 patients a day can occur if the phased daily recovery starts in November.

However, the government is planning to push ahead with the daily recovery roadmap as scheduled by expanding the number of beds and increasing the number of at-home treatment.
