[앵커]

As the winter resurgence of Corona 19 continues, the majority of patients occurred in 10 weeks from Thursday.

From today, the improved vaccine can be given three months after the last vaccination or confirmation.

Corona 19 new confirmed cases were 59,089, the most in 10 weeks from Thursday.

Compared to a week ago or two weeks ago, there were more than 3,000 people, so moderate progress continued.

The number of seriously ill patients continued to exceed 400 for the sixth day, and the number of deaths was 59, 6 more than the previous day.

To prepare for the possibility that the peak time of the regular winter season could be earlier than previously forecast between late December and January, the interval between vaccinations with improved vaccines has been shortened to three months.

People confirmed or vaccinated before August 26 can receive an extra dose of the bivalent vaccine.

The improved rate of vaccine vaccinations compared to those who are vaccinated is 6.1%, 17% for those over 60, and 18% for nursing hospitals.

The quarantine authorities are working hard to publicize the effectiveness of the improved vaccine, believing that understanding and recognizing its effectiveness is the first step in attracting voluntary participation in vaccination.

In the midst of this, the reported rate of adverse reactions to improved vaccines so far has been found to be about 1/10 that of current unit price vaccines.

It is important to consider that better vaccination is just beginning and that there are not many vaccines, but it is worth noting whether safety concerns can be reduced.
