South Korean to go to polls amidst COVID-19 outbreak

South Korea is undergoing the polls for the Parliamentary Election on April 15.

Despite the crisis generated as a result of the outbreak of the COVID-19, the people of South Korea are to cast their votes from 6.00 a.m. local time, that would last for 12 hours at 14,330 polling stations across the nation, as confirmed by the National Election Commission.

The polling will take place to elect the 300 members of the National Assembly of South Korea.

The National Election Commission as part of the necessary precautions have disinfected the voting stations, marked the standing line at intervals of at least one metre and have made it compulsory for voters to wear masks and disposable plastic gloves after sanitizing their hands. Provisions for checking body temperatures have also been made on each polling booth.

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in the delay of elections in several other nations including the United States, Britain and France.
