Seoul: New Coronavirus infection in South Korea exceeds 4,000 in a day for the first time since the start of Pandemi as the distribution of Delta continues to shake the country after relieving social distance in a few weeks to improve its economy.
The Korean Disease Control Agency and Prevention said most of the 4,116 newly reported cases Wednesday came from the capital of Seoul and the surrounding metropolitan region, where an increase in hospitalization had created concerns about the possibility of lack of intensive care units.
The country’s death was now 3,363 after 35 virus patients died in the last 24 hours.
586 patients who are serious or critical conditions also mark new height.
South Korea is the last country to see infection and hospitalization up after loosening social distance measures amid high vaccination levels.
Cases also rose in the United States ahead of the Thanksgiving vacation holiday, while Austria entered a big lock on Monday as a wave of virus spread throughout Europe.
Officials in South Korea ngulda social distance rules starting this month and fully reopened school on Monday in what they describes as the first step to recover some pre-pandemic situations.
In allowing larger social meetings and longer dining hours in the restaurant, officials hope that increasing the level of vaccination will keep inpatient and death even if the virus continues to spread.
But health workers are now wrestling with the increase in serious cases and deaths among parents who reject vaccines or their immune has decreased after being injected at the beginning of the vaccine launch which began in February.
“The increase in serious cases is much higher than we expected,” said the Son of the Ministry of Health of Yundrae in the briefing.
Son said officials monitored the situation and announced steps to impose stronger social distance measures in the coming weeks if the spread continued to deteriorate.
According to KDCA data, most virus patients died in recent weeks of 60s or more, and the majority of them were not fully vaccinated or vaccinated at all.
Son said that there was also an increase in breakthrough infections among parents who received two shots, showing how the Delta variant reduced the effectiveness of the vaccine.
Officials are now scrambling to accelerate booster shots and make plans to share the capacity of hospitals between the larger Seoul regions and other regions with smaller outbreaks to prevent the hospital system overwhelmed.
Son said the government had issued an administrative order to a hospital in the capital area to appoint hundreds of more beds for virus patients.
He said more than 83 percent of the designated region ICU for Covid-19 treatment was currently occupied.
