A total of 10,910 total coronavirus cases has been witnessed in the country with the death toll reaching to 256.

South Korea, the country which was looked upon as a role model to curb the deadly coronavirus feared a second wave of the deadly outbreak of the COVID-19 and ordered immediate closure of all the clubs and bars after the reports of new cases. South Korea appeared to have brought its outbreak under control thanks to an extensive “trace, test and treat” programme that has drawn widespread praise globally.

The Prime Minister of South Korea, Chung Sye-kyun, the health officials are trying their best to trace the people who went to clubs and bars after the relaxations was commenced across the country.

Moon Jae-in said that the citizens must neither panic nor let down their  guard and that the right quarantine and medical systems combined with experience to respond quickly to any unexpected infection clusters that might occur.
