Our top story this afternoon...
After four days of new daily COVID-19 cases hovering around the 100-mark, South Korea reported less than 50 new cases on Friday.
But health authorities are warning against complacency, especially at national parks, as tourists head to the mountains to enjoy the cool weather and autumn views.
Han Seong-woo reports.
South Korea saw the number of daily COVID-19 infections drop below 50 for the first time in over two weeks this Friday.
Of the 47 new cases reported, 41 were locally transmitted with Seoul and the surrounding area accounting for most of those cases.
These include cluster infections at a pub in Incheon, a hospital and funeral house in Seoul, and from social gatherings on the east coast of Gangwon-do Province.
"Cluster infections are still popping up from social gatherings and at places where high-risk facilities are concentrated, so it's too early to relax.”
Another concern is the increasing amount of tourists and hikers heading to the mountains to enjoy the autumn leaves amid the recent relaxation of social distancing guidelines to level 1.
Starting Saturday, national parks will operate under special measures for the fall to prevent a potential spread of the virus.
The number of critically ill patients has risen to 85 and the total number of cases now stands at slightly over 25-thousand.
COVID-19 has claimed two more lives, bringing the country's death toll to 441.
