South Korea reports 1,375 new cases of COVID-19 on Monday Updated: 2021-09-06 09:57:49 KST

Staying with COVID-19.
We turn to Kim Do-yeon at the news center for other virus-related updates.
As we just reported on, adjustments to the distancing measures are now in place and will stay in place for another four weeks.
Where does South Korea stand in this seemingly unremitting fourth wave?

Mark, FIRST, South Korea's daily COVID-19 caseload for Monday stands at 1,3-hundred-75 of which all but 24 were locally transmitted.
This is a dip of 115 cases from 24 hours before, but it was expected as Monday's numbers reflect slower testing over the weekend.
On the week-to-week, it's also down 110 from last week's number for the same period.
However, in recent days although numbers have been fluctuating they have remained in the same range.
In addition, Seoul and its surrounding regions are continuing to report a high number of cases despite having the highest level of social distancing while the rest of the country is slowly showing some decline in cases under level three.
