SEOUL (dpa-AFX) – South Korea has recorded more than 4000 new infections in one day for the first time since the beginning of the corona pandemic. As the health authorities announced on Wednesday, there were 4115 cases of infection the day before. The total number climbed to 425,065.

The country is facing a hurdle on its “return to normal”, said Prime Minister Kim Boo Kyum. The situation in the capital Seoul and the surrounding region is particularly difficult. It must be checked to implement an emergency action plan, said Kim. Around half of the approximately 52 million inhabitants live in the metropolitan region.

According to the authorities, a daily record was also set for the intensive care patients infected with the coronavirus. 586 were in a serious to critical condition. More than 80 percent of the available intensive care beds in the capital region were occupied. The number of Covid-19-related deaths rose by 35 to 3,363 on Tuesday.
