The fourth wave of the pandemic in the country shows little sign of easing as South Korea added over 15-hundred new infections as of today.
The fast-spreading Delta variant is adding to concerns as it has become dominant in the country.
South Korea has raised its social distancing in the capital areas to the highest level for three weeks, but the figures have stayed well over 1-thousand since then.
The authorities are reviewing additional measures to curb the virus.
Meanwhile, vaccination campaigns picked up speed yesterday.
Almost 500-thousand people got their first shots on Friday alone, raising the total tally to over 37 percent of the population.
