As the spread of the new coronavirus infection (COVID-19) continues in Korea, the number of new confirmed cases on the 28th was in the low 500s.
As of 00:00 on the same day, the Central Quarantine Countermeasures Headquarters announced that the number of new confirmed cases increased by 501, bringing the total to 155,572.
The number fell below 600 in six days since the 22nd (394), down 113 from the previous day (614).
However, it is difficult to say that the spread of the virus has slowed because it reflects the effects of weekends and holidays, which have significantly reduced the number of tests compared to weekdays. Usually, the number of confirmed cases is low until the beginning of the week, but it shows a trend of increasing again from the middle of the week.
In particular, as of Monday, 500 people are not a small number. Since this month, the number of confirmed cases every Monday recorded 485 → 399 → 357, showing a slow decline from the level of 300 to 400.
On this day, the route of infection of the new confirmed cases was 472 local and 29 imported.
If you look at the recent epidemic situation, the number of confirmed cases per day is fluctuating between 300 and 600 as group infections continue to spread across the country.
From the 22nd to this day, the number of new confirmed cases in the past week was 394 → 645 → 610 → 634 → 668 → 614 → 501 per day. During this period, the 600 people are 5 times, and the 300 and 500 people are 1 each.
