The government just announced that it would raise the social distancing of the metropolitan area to the second stage. Starts from 00:00 on the coming Tuesday. From this point on, entertainment bars such as clubs should be closed, restaurants can only be packaged and delivered at any time after 9pm. The reason why the government, which tried to avoid making shops close as much as possible, made this decision, is because of the sense of crisis that it could lead to situations that are difficult to control, such as the United States and Europe. Today (22nd), 330 more people were infected with Corona 19. There are over 300 people appearing for five days in a row, but this was not the case even during the second epidemic in August.
