Analyses of the infection situation and the system for health care provision
The increase rate of new positive cases has been continuously rising since June. If the increase rate rises further, in less than two weeks, we will face a critical situation with the number of infections far exceeding that of the third wave. There is an urgent need to prepare crisis management systems for hospital care, as well as for designated hotels for recovery and at-home recovery.
