Korea will add a six-month expiration date to its Covid-19 vaccine passes and speed up the administration of booster shots for people between the ages of 18 and 49.
Health authorities declared that Korea’s Covid-19 risk was “high” over the past week, as pandemic indicators continue to worsen.
Over 70 percent of Korea is vaccinated against Covid-19, the inoculation campaign crossing a key threshold that should lead to a return to normal in early November.
The government is planning an outpatient treatment system for Covid-19 patients to get care without having to be hospitalized.
Korea will form a government-private committee to discuss strategies to return to normal life and will hold its first meeting this week in preparation of starting its "With Corona" plan in November.
Korea is slowly starting to recognize overseas vaccinations.
