Do-yeon, any updates on the vaccination end?
Mok-yeon despite the rise in cases there is some good news when it comes to the vaccination rollout.
With the inoculation campaign in full swing in South Korea supplies continue to arrive in the country.
On Thursday more than 870-thousand doses of the Moderna vaccine are due to arrive.
This is part of the 40 million doses that the government bought directly from Moderna and will bring the total received so far to around 11 million doses OF THAT more than 7.5 million doses came within this month.
Authorities say that now there should not be any supply issues when it comes to administering first doses to 70 percent of the nation before the Chuseok Holiday.
As of midnight Thursday nearly 62 percent of the nation received at least their first dose so there's less than 10 percent to go before the holidays which are just over a week away.
