In the capital of South Korea, all bars and nightclubs were urgently closed due to a new outbreak of coronavirus infection.
Seoul authorities announced the emergency closure of all the city’s bars and clubs in connection with a new outbreak of coronavirus. On Saturday, May 9, Yonhap reported.
City officials made this decision after 18 new cases of COVID-19 infection were detected in Seoul. Moreover, as the publication notes, 17 people were infected by the same man.
The infection was spread by a 29-year-old resident of Yenin, who visited several clubs and bars in Seoul in the Itaewon district on May 1.
According to authorities, about 1,500 people could contact a man.
Officials called on everyone who visited bars and clubs in Itaewon in early May to pass tests and sit at home in self-isolation.
South Korea, after the sixth of May, began to introduce reliefs from the quarantine regime after only a few cases of infection began to be recorded in the country.
Now the country has a regime of social distance. As of May 9, there are almost 11 thousand confirmed cases of COVID-19 in South Korea.
Earlier, South Korea was included in the list of coronavirus winners.
