Social distancing rules in South Korea extended for two weeks

In another attempt to check the spread of the COVID-19 infection, South Korea has decided to continue with the strict social distancing rules for a period of two more weeks.

Health Minister Kwon Deok-cheol has said the second highest level of distancing rules will remain in place for the Seoul region until January17. He says the third highest level of restrictions will stay in other areas until then.

Kwon Deok-cheol said that the measures were required to reduce a prolonged surge in infections that has led to a surge in deaths.
