South Korea BRINGS BACK restrictions amid fears of coronavirus 2nd wave

0 27
Authorities have warned that they will return to strict social distancing rules if they fail to curb the second wave of Covid-19 infections. The quarantine measures were eased just a few weeks ago.

Tighter restrictions were reinstated in South Korea’s capital, Seoul along with the adjacent city of Incheon and the Gyeonggi Province until June 14. During this time period, all night clubs, bars, museums, and some other public places will remain closed. Companies were recommended to allow employees to work from home and to reintroduce flexible schedules, among other measures. Citizens were encouraged to avoid large gatherings.

“The next two weeks are crucial to prevent the spread of the infection in the metropolitan area,” Health Minister Park Neung-hoo said.
