I havent heard that name in years.
South Korea reported more than 400,000 new coronavirus cases Wednesday, a new record, as the country continues to ease restrictions despite the Omicron-fueled wave of infections.
Health authorities said 400,741 cases were recorded, the countrys highest daily figure since the pandemic began two years ago.
The latest spike in cases is the last biggest challenge facing the country, Sohn Young-rae, a senior health official, told a press briefing.
The government had anticipated caseloads in this ballpark, he said, adding that they believed they were nearing the peak of the Omicron wave.
If we overcome this crisis we will step closer to returning to normalcy, he added.
South Korea leads the world in newly reported cases in the last seven days, according to WHO data, with 2,358,878 cases, followed by Vietnam with 1,795,380.
The vast majority of South Koreas eligible population has been vaccinated and boosted, and despite the record number of infections in the country of 52 million people, death rates remain very low.
The country has also continued to relax its social distancing rules, under pressure from small businesses and self-employed Koreans who say years-long Covid restrictions had pushed their businesses to the brink. Yeah.
Vaccines increased positive tests.
Everyone knows and accepts that now.
The solution is more vaccines, according to experts at Pfizer.
I cant see any reason that the Jewish CEO of Pfizer would lie about the need to purchase billions and billions of dollars more of his useless product.
