A special two-week quarantine period began in Korea on September 28 ahead of the Chuseok holidays this week. However, there are widespread concerns that the coronavirus could spread via family gatherings and travels during the five-day festivities. The government has banned some conservative groups from holding anti-government drive-through rallies on October 3, vowing to sternly deal with any violation. Here is more.

Cluster COVID-19 infections were reported, following family gatherings in Gunpo and Anyang, Gyeonggi-do Province. Among eight gathering participants, at least six people, including a 101-year-old man, tested positive. This month, there was a man in his 80s who died after contracting the disease from his child at a family gathering. This is why family gatherings and travels are seen as the largest threat to quarantine efforts during the Chuseok holiday. Health officials asked citizens to abide by anti-epidemic precautions during holiday family gatherings and avoid meeting with elderly members who are at higher risk if infected with COVID-19.

[Soundbite] JUNG EUN-KYEONG(KOREA DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION AGENCY) : "A reduction in person-to-person contacts and migration can help stop the spread of the virus. Our society will return to a more safe and stable situation in autumn and winter if we avoid meeting people during the Chuseok holidays."

The government banned all rallies some conservative groups are planning to hold in Seoul on October 3, even if they attract fewer than ten participants. It will also block drive-through demonstrations in which protesters rally inside their cars.

[Soundbite] SOHN YOUNG-RAE(CENTRAL DISASTERS MANAGEMENT HEADQUARTERS) : "The government will take quick steps to break up unlawful rallies and sternly deal with those who disobey government orders and resist violently. They can be arrested on the site."

Meanwhile, in ten regions across the nation, 407 people were found to have received flu shots from the vaccine batch that wasn't supposed to be used as it was allegedly exposed to room temperature. According to health authorities, only one among these recipients reported experiencing pain after the injection. So far free flu shots have been administered to a total of some 627,000 people.
