There were 735 new patients with the novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19), continuing to 700 for two days in a row. Although the largest number of patients poured in 105 days after the 7th of January (869), the Central Disaster and Safety Countermeasures Headquarters (middle script) judged that “the spreading tax is not increasing rapidly.”
“We do not raise our distance to tens of thousands of patients”
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Bangdaebon) on the 22nd, the number of new corona19 patients was 735 as of 0 o’clock on the 22nd, and the cumulative number of patients was 116661. In the last week from the 16th to this day, the number of new confirmed cases was 673 → 658 → 671 → 532 → 549 → 731 → 735, twice for 500, three for 600, and twice for 700. Came out. According to the’weekend effect’, which reduces the number of tests on the weekend and the number of confirmed cases decreases, 500 units came out on Mondays and Tuesdays, the 19th and 20th, but 700 units continued from Wednesday.
When adjusting the social distancing stage, the average number of domestic cases per day for a week was 625.4, which is a key indicator, exceeding the 2.5 stage standard (over 400 to 500 new patients nationwide). However, the quarantine authorities analyzed that this week’s Corona 19 situation is on a modest increase compared to last week.
Yoon Tae-ho, head of the Central Accident Recovery Headquarters (heavy water version), said on the 22nd, “We need to monitor the situation a little more.” This is because even if the number of confirmed cases increases, the number of severely ill patients does not occur, so the medical system can handle it.
According to the heavy water version, the current medical system can handle 1200 patients every day.
Sohn Young-rae, head of the social strategy group, Jungsu-bon, said, “If you raise the (distance) stage in the metropolitan area or Busan, which is the current second stage, it becomes stage 2.5. Even in this case, very large measures must be taken such as restrictions on business hours,” he said. “I think that if we effectively strengthen quarantine, we can make it into a stagnation phase.”
Meanwhile, the quarantine authorities said that local vaccination centers are opening one after another in connection with the criticism that vaccination for the elderly is slow.
The Corona 19 Vaccination Response Promotion Team announced that 29 additional regional vaccination centers were opened on the 22nd, and currently operates a total of 204 centers nationwide. It is expected to expand to 264 locations by the end of this month.
According to the promotion team, the number of new vaccinations as of 0 o’clock on this day was 131253, which tripled to 46,282 on the last day.
