The clock for vaccination against COVID-19 is speeding up again, with the vaccination reservation rate for young adults in their 40s and younger approaching 70%.

Independent of vaccination, group infection continues in the metropolitan area, and 43 confirmed cases have been confirmed at workplaces in Yangcheon-gu, Seoul.

Let’s hear more details from a reporter who went to the scene. Reporter Cheol-hee Kim!

Yes, it is listed at the Vaccination Center in Guro-gu, Seoul.

[앵커]

Are there any vaccinations against COVID-19?

[기자]

That’s right.

The vaccination center resumed vaccination after having a short lunch break from noon to 1 pm.

More than five hundred people have been vaccinated from 9 am until now, and today (30th), 718 people are scheduled to receive the vaccine a day.

Among them, 319 people between the ages of 18 and 49 who are subject to vaccination in the third quarter were reserved.

Those who are subject to voluntary vaccinations set by the local government, such as call center employees and construction site workers, are also receiving vaccinations.

In the 10-part system of pre-registration for the young and elderly vaccine, 68.5% of the subjects completed the reservation.

By age group, those in their 40s accounted for the highest at 74.3%, followed by those in their 20s, teens, and 30s.

The final vaccination rate is expected to exceed 80% if the local government’s self-vaccination target and the Janssen vaccine recipients among the reserve army and civil defense are combined.

The quarantine authorities believe it is possible to vaccinate 1 million people a day.

As we set the standard of ‘with Corona’, which means a change in the quarantine strategy, to an adult inoculation rate of 80% or more, we plan to focus on securing the quantity of vaccines.

[앵커]

Is mass infection continuing in the metropolitan area?

[기자]

That’s right.

At work in Yangcheon-gu, Seoul, 43 people have been confirmed with Corona 19 so far.

Five workers were first confirmed on the 28th, and 38 additional people tested positive yesterday (29th).

Although there were partitions in the place, the quarantine authorities believe that the infection spread due to the lack of periodic ventilation and the high density in the office.

Group infections from restaurants in Gwanak-gu, Seoul are also continuing.

The Seoul Metropolitan Government said that 36 people have been confirmed so far in the district alone.

The first confirmed case was confirmed on the 21st, and the virus spread to restaurant users, employees, family members, and acquaintances.

It was found that although basic quarantine rules such as access control were followed well, the height of the table partition was low, so distance was insufficient, and it was difficult to wear a mask when eating.

In addition, group infections, large and small, are continuing, with 17 confirmed at a model house in Goyang, Gyeonggi and 14 at a construction site in Yongin, Gyeonggi.

Until now, this is YTN Kim Chul-hee at the Vaccination Center in Guro-gu, Seoul.
