The city of Seoul said, “By midnight today (7th), there are 583 newly infected people with the new corona.” This breaks the record for 552 people on December 24, last year. In particular, the number of infected people has been increasing rapidly recently, especially in the 20s and 30s, where the vaccination rate is low, and there is growing concern about the fourth pandemic. Of the 583 newly infected people today, 175 were in their 20s and 111 were in their 30s, accounting for about half of all infected people. The city of Seoul analyzed that the number of infected people is increasing because this age group often visits places in three dense environments (close, closed, and dense) such as bars and clubs. Park Yumi, an epidemic control officer at the Disaster Safety Countermeasures Headquarters in Seoul, said at a regular meeting on that day, “The vaccination rate for people in their 20s and 30s is low, and the environmental contact rate for 3 Cs is high.” “This age group is asymptomatic. In many cases, it is mild or mild, and there are an increasing number of cases in which it has already been transmitted to other people before the person recognizes the onset of the symptom and before undergoing the new corona test. ” He added, “The fact that there are many trips and gatherings during the summer vacation is also a cause of the epidemic of infected people, especially in their 20s and 30s.” Park said, “We will increase the amount of tests in the future, and if possible, we will move toward early detection and quarantine.” “If the amount of tests increases, the number of infected people will increase for the time being, but if possible. I hope that many people will be able to inspect, quarantine and receive appropriate treatment. “
