The number of new COVID-19 cases in South Korea is slowly going down.
South Korea reported 136 COVID-19 cases on Tuesday,... the sixth day in a row that the number has been between 100 and 200.
Out of the 120 local cases on Tuesday, 98 were from the capital region... and 16 are imported cases.
Even though the number of cases is falling, there is still a high risk of cluster infections.
"After the strengthened social distancing, daily cases are in the one-hundred range. But, there were 52 cluster infections in the last two weeks, which is five times the number in early August.
He added that aside from religious facilities, many cluster infections are occurring at indoor physical training facilities, meetings and workplaces.
The government is taking measures to stop people from travelling around to contain the spread of virus.
Since 2017, South Korea has allowed people to drive on the expressway for free during the holiday seasons,... but NOT for this upcoming Chuseok the Korean Thanksgiving.
However, Prime Minister Chung Sye-kyun said that if the COVID-19 cases in the country decreases to under one hundred a day, the distancing regulations in the capital area can be loosened to level two.
Five additional deaths were reported on Tuesday, bringing the death toll to 341.
The country's total number of cases stands at 21-thousand 432.
