In fact, another 1.8 million South Korean grade school students returned to the classroom today, though some schools are still closed because of the outbreak.
These students are in the first year of high school, second year of middle school and third to fourth year of elementary school.
And that means 77 percent of the country's students are now able to go to class in person.
There are still 519 schools still shut, though, most of them near a logistics center in the city of Bucheon, where there's a cluster infection.
At those schools, only high school seniors are going to class until next Wednesday.
