PM says ending nationwide social distancing drive could increase spread of COVID-19 Updated: 2020-04-02 13:40:49 KST

South Korea is scheduled to end its two-week social distancing campaign this Sunday, but Prime Minister Chung Se-kyun is concerned that could undo the progress made in containing it and cause it to spread faster.
Meeting officials this morning, Chung said, considering schools have been postponed again, the government is still trying to decide how long the country should stick with social distancing more broadly.
The government started the campaign on March 22nd, urging people to cancel all meetings and avoid mass gatherings.
It's set to end on April 5th, but Chung said it could be extended as cases spike globally and South Korea continues to see cluster outbreaks.
