Seoul, Nov 29 (TIWN) South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Monday urged a rapid administration of booster shots against Covid-19 as the eased anti-virus rules raised the number of severe cases and deaths.

The government launched the "Living with Covid-19" rules in November to alleviate anti-virus measures following the country's full vaccination rate topping 70 per cent, Xinhua news agency reported.  With the eased social-distancing guideline, the confirmed cases surged for the past month. In the latest tally, South Korea reported 3,309 more cases of Covid-19 for the past 24 hours, lifting the total number of infections to 444,200.  The number of infected people who were in a serious condition surpassed 600, while 32 more deaths were confirmed, leaving the death toll at 3,580.
