The number of new COVID-19 cases in non-metropolitan areas has risen to around 600 again.

More than 100 cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed in Daegu.
The triple-digit increase has continued for the sixth day, with foreign infections accounting for more than half.
With the cumulative number of infections centered on Vietnamese gatherings exceeding 480, concerns are growing whether it will spread to community transmission.
In Gimhae, Gyeongsangnam-do, where the number of infections related to foreign restaurants is rapidly increasing, the number of related confirmed cases increased by double digits in one day, making it difficult to catch the spread.

Of the 83 new confirmed cases in North Chungcheong Province, more than half are foreigners, and sporadic infections of foreign workers are also occurring in Chungnam and Gangwon.
In particular, as three foreigners working at a business site in Geomundo, Yeosu, Jeollanam-do were confirmed, more than 1,500 residents of the entire island were also tested.
In Busan, group infections were confirmed at emotional bars, academies, and medical institutions, and after the Chuseok holiday, the number of confirmed cases with unclear routes of infection is increasing rapidly.
