We start with the latest on the coronavirus in South Korea.
On Monday, there were fewer than two-thousand new cases reported for a THIRD day in a row -- the number coming in at 1,2-hundred-97.
That's 297 cases fewer than Sunday's total.
But the authorities are concerned about another potential surge when testing picks back up after the three-day weekend that runs through Monday.
On the vaccination front, from Monday people over 18 will be able to get their jabs without having to book an appointment.
Over 30 million people in the country have been fully vaccinated so far, making up 59.3 percent of the population.
