Business owners in South Korea whose sales were directly affected by the COVID-19 outbreak should apply for the government's financial assistance by 5PM today, if they want it before the Chuseok holidays.
The application can be made during Chuseok as well, but the money will only be processed afterwards.
Eligible businesses are bars, buffet restaurants, private academies with over 300 students, singing rooms, gyms and computer cafes.
They have been restricted due to strict social distancing measures.
Out of 2.4 million people whom the government aims to support, around three-quarters have already applied.
One business owner may receive up to 1,7-hundred U.S. dollars.
