The number of COVID-19 infections among students in South Korea is at a record high with most schools fully open for in-person classes.
According to the Ministry of Education an average of 2-hundred-45 students a day from kindergarten through high school were confirmed with the virus from the 23rd to the 27th of September.
That's around a tenth of South Korea's overall infections over that period.
Ninety-nine percent of schools are holding face-to-face classes.
Local health authorities announced this week that vaccines will be given to kids over the age of 12 if their parents consent.
