[Ma Fei, special correspondent of global times in South Korea] according to the report of the central anti epidemic Department of South Korea on the 23rd, 397 new cases were confirmed in South Korea on the 22nd, and more than 300 cases were added for two consecutive days. Due to the rapid spread of the epidemic in the capital area, the South Korean government raised the level of social distance restriction measures in the capital circle to the second stage, and then extended the scope from the capital circle to the whole territory on the 23rd. At a press conference on the 23rd, Zheng Yinjing, head of the head of the central anti epidemic Strategy Department of the Republic of Korea, said at a press conference on the 23rd that the number of new cases has not reached the peak of the epidemic and is expected to increase further. At present, the epidemic continues to spread throughout the country. Except for the capital circle, the number of confirmed cases in 17 cities and prefectures is increasing, which may trigger a nationwide pandemic at any time. In the recent rapid increase of cases, the number of religious related infections was the largest, and church infected patients were re transmitted in other public places. According to the analysis, the recent cases are mainly sporadic cluster infection, which is difficult for epidemic prevention departments to track. Moreover, it spreads around the capital circle and the elderly population. The situation is more dangerous than the single collective infection in Daqiu and qingshangbei road in February and March. The epidemic broke out in the middle of February in South Korea, and the people actively responded to various anti epidemic measures in the early stage of the outbreak. However, with the continuous extension of the anti epidemic front and the slowing down of the epidemic situation, people’s awareness of epidemic prevention began to relax. The reporter saw that since the beginning of summer, restaurants, cafes and other places have restored the usual scene of surging crowds, and various kinds of parties are also increasing. In a cafe near the reporter’s home, many people don’t wear masks to chat, and many parents take their children to enjoy the cool in the coffee shop. In the case of domestic new cases not cleared, there is no doubt that increased security risks. Yonhap 22 Daily said 63 people had been diagnosed with a collective infection caused by a Starbucks in Gyeonggi Daopo Prefecture. < / P > < p > “it seems that you still need to wear a mask Ms. Park told our reporter that she didn’t want to wear a mask recently because of the hot weather. “I thought it was ok, but I didn’t expect it to become so serious. Now the party has been cancelled and I dare not go anywhere.” The reporter found on the streets of Seoul at the weekend that there were fewer pedestrians in the downtown area, and the number of customers in the restaurants was also significantly reduced. Many people ordered takeaway. The head of South Korea’s central anti epidemic Policy Department said on the 23rd that the adverse situation could only be reversed if every effort was made to control the increase in cases over the weekend. Only if the second stage of measures to maintain social distance is effective in the next week, can it form a synergistic effect with the infectious source tracing work of the epidemic prevention department.
