SITUATION UPDATE: January 2022

The number of confirmed cases in December 2021 has reached 4,000 cases a day, driven by the Omicron variant. As the positive cases increase, South Korea remains on high alert.

As much as 83% of the population in the cities have been fully vaccinated, but only 38 percent have received booster shots to prevent fatalities and critically illness from the Omicron variant. The government is tightening its regulations on social distancing.
