The number of new corona19 confirmed cases has plummeted to 300 in a week.
However, the quarantine authorities are warning about the spread of the third epidemic.
The decrease in the number of new confirmed cases is due to the confirmed number of tests.
Reporter Seung-eun Lee reports.
There were 332 new cases of Corona 19.
Domestic outbreaks were 313 and overseas inflows were 19.
The metropolitan area had 236 people, accounting for 75.4% of the total occurrence.
It has been a week since the number of new confirmed cases has fallen to 300.
However, the spread did not stop.
This is because the number of inspections on Sunday has decreased by 57% compared to last Friday.
Warning lights have already been lit on major quarantine indicators.
Last week, the number of new confirmed cases in Korea reached an average of 454 per day, which falls within the range of 2.5 steps.
The infection reproductive index, which shows how many people are infected by one confirmed person, jumped to 1.12 last week.
The positive rate, which is the ratio of the number of confirmed patients to the number of testers, is also increasing.

Taking into account the effects of group outbreaks, Lunar New Year holidays, and alleviation of social distancing at large workplaces and medical institutions, the spread may increase.
The number of mutant virus inflow cases has also increased to 128, and the new semester is approaching.

The government will observe the trend of confirmed cases during the week and finalize a distancing adjustment plan that will be applied from next week later in the week.
