Social distancing likely to be extended in S. Korea by 2 more weeks, possibly with vaccination benefits Updated: 2021-09-30 07:01:45 KST

South Korea is expected to extend its current social distancing levels for another two weeks.
A government advisory panel met Wednesday night to discuss what needs to be done starting next Monday when the current measures expire.
According to Yonhap News Agency, the majority agreed to the extension but with a shortened period of two weeks rather than a month.
They also discussed adding so-called vaccine incentives in a bid to ease complaints over the distancing rules.
A final decision will be announced on Friday.
The Seoul area has been under the strictest level of distancing for the past three months, triggering growing complaints from small business owners and citizens.
