South Korea has extended its "special travel advisory" by another month in a bid to prevent South Koreans spreading COVID-19 in the country upon their return from overseas.
The foreign ministry says the advisory will remain in place until June 19th.
It added the decision is based on the continued global spread of the virus.
It also stressed that many countries are still applying strict border controls on foreign entrants.
The special advisory is imposed in the case of an urgent and short-term danger to travelers.
Seoul first issued the advisory on March 23rd.
