Moon urges rapid Admin of booster shots against Covid-19 in S.Africa

South Korea: President Moon Jae-in of South Korea called for the administration of booster shots against Covid-19 as the incidence of serious cases and deaths increased when anti-virus laws were relaxed. Moon, who presided over a Covid-19 reaction conference, said the country's pandemic situation became more critical as the number of new infections, severe cases, and deaths increased, as did the number of hospital beds available for severe patients.

According to sources, the government implemented the "Living with Covid-19" laws in November to ease anti-virus measures when the country's entire immunisation rate surpassed 70 percent.

The confirmed cases have been on the rise for the past month, thanks to the loosened social-distancing guidelines. South Korea has recorded 3,309 new Covid-19 cases in the last 24 hours, bringing the overall number of infections to 444,200. The number of infected patients in serious condition has crossed 600, and 32 more deaths have been confirmed, bringing the total number of deaths to 3,580. Moon stressed the importance of inoculating the unvaccinated, emphasising the importance of the third Covid vaccine dose.

"A third dose is not an extra shot, but rather a standard shot. It is necessary to modify the mindset that immunisation can only be finished when the third injection has been received "Moon remarked.
