We begin with the COVID-19 situation here in South Korea.
The daily caseload has been above one thousand for more than a month and a half now.
With this, the authorities have again extended the current social distancing measures imposed in the country.
To get the whole picture, we have our Kim Do-yeon standing by at the News Center for us.
Do-yeon, let's begin with the numbers.
Mok-yeon, South Korea on Monday reported 1,418 new COVID-19 infections of which all but 48 were locally transmitted.
As many know by now, while it's a dip from the day before, Monday numbers are usually lower than other days due to fewer tests done over the weekend.
On a positive note this Monday's number was 137 cases lower than the previous Monday but with many factors to be taken into account, it's not a clear enough sign to say it's a downward trend.
In fact, tracing is still underway for more than 30 percent of confirmed cases so there could be more cluster infections that haven't yet been spotted.
