Authorities to announce strengthened anti-virus measures on Monday Updated: 2021-11-26 08:30:31 KST

A decision by the South Korean government on whether to introduce tougher anti-virus measures has been pushed back until Monday.
It was originally planned for Friday but authorities failed to reach a conclusion after Thursday's discussion on the matter.
On the agenda was the ramping up booster shots for the elderly and expanding vaccine pass mandates to those under 18.
Talks on making vaccine passes compulsory at restaurants and cafes as well as reducing numbers for social gatherings are also thought to have taken place.
Watchers say the delay comes as authorities are facing strong opposition from small business owners.
