The spread of the new coronavirus infection (COVID-19) in Daegu has been maintaining 50-60 people per day for a week since the 23rd.
According to the Daegu City Disaster and Safety Countermeasures Headquarters on the 29th, the number of confirmed cases in Daegu stood at 56 as of 00:00 that day.
Thirteen of them are related to a Filipino grocery store located in Dongil-dong, Jung-gu. Two Filipinos, including a lecturer at an English language school in Dalseo-gu, were confirmed after visiting this grocery store after returning from an acquaintance meeting in Busan on the 18th, and the nth infection is continuing. The cumulative number of confirmed cases has risen to 43.
The spread of the delta mutant virus at the gym in Beomeo-dong, Suseong-gu, where infection was confirmed, is still there. Three confirmed cases have been confirmed, bringing the total number of confirmed cases to 135. At the pub in the club alley in Dongseong-ro, Jung-gu, there were two more people, bringing the total to 90.
At a hospital in Naedang-dong, Seo-gu, six people, including patients and medical staff, were confirmed to have been infected. The number of confirmed cases related to an entertainment pub in Bokhyeon-dong, Buk-gu and a PC room in Dalseo-gu also increased by 2, bringing the total to 37 and 9.
At the Dongsan Shopping Mall in Seomun Market, the largest traditional market in the country, one additional person was confirmed, raising the cumulative number of confirmed cases to six. Although the cumulative number of confirmed cases is small, there is concern that the number will increase as more than 400 workers on the 2nd and 3rd floors of Dongsan Shopping Mall and visiting citizens are subject to testing.
In particular, ahead of the presidential election, if it is confirmed that Corona 19 has spread in Seomun Market, as influential presidential candidates such as former Prosecutor General Yoon Seok-yeol and People’s Party Chairman Ahn Cheol-soo visited Seomun Market, there is a possibility that it could affect the presidential candidates as well.
In addition, small-scale group infections are not decreasing continuously in PC rooms, schools, automobile parts companies, coin karaoke rooms, and churches.
On this day, 22 new cases were confirmed in the Gyeongbuk area. By region, 8 people from Pohang, 3 from Gyeongju and Gumi, 2 from Gimcheon and Andong, and 1 from Yeongcheon, Sangju, Mungyeong, and Cheongdo.
