South Korea confirmed 1-thousand 9-hundred 52 new COVID-19 cases on Wednesday.
This is a jump of almost 7-hundred cases from Tuesday,.. and around 3-hundred 80 cases from the same day last week.
All but 22 were locally transmitted.
The weekend effect has officially come into play, as cases usually begin to increase from Wednesday.
But we are seeing a bigger increase, as people seemingly become more complacent ahead of eased restrictions next week.
