Amid the cases of coronavirus rising in the country of South Korea, Interior Minister Lee Sang-min stated that they are expecting that the number of travellers will rise sharply in the summer vacation season, amid a new wave of virus resurgence.
Reports suggest that around 200 quarantine workers will be additionally assigned to Incheon International Airport located in the capital, Seoul and one of the busiest airports in the country.
Likewise, seven other regional airports are also in stages to tighten quarantine inspection.
Reports further added that the government will be facilitating a safe tourism environment as travel demand is expected to shoot up due to the normalisation of international air routes and during the peak summer vacation season.
Additionally, the government will also set up around 2500 workers at top tourist destinations across the nation to ensure that the antivirus rules and hygiene standards are in place.
The South Korean Government has also decided to expand eligibility for the fourth COVID vaccine shot to people aged 50 years, and older, as well as people aged 18 and older, with underlying health conditions. Earlier, only those aged 60 or over, or with an immune disorder were eligible for the fourth dose.
