SEOUL, May 26 ― South Korea today said masks will no longer be required outdoors from July for those vaccinated with at least one Covid-19 shot.

The move is a bid to encourage older residents to get vaccinated as South Korea aims to immunise at least 70 per cent of its 52 million people by September, from just 7 per cent now.

People given at least one dose also will be allowed to gather in larger numbers starting June, Prime Minister Kim Boo-kyum told a coronavirus response meeting today.

He said all quarantine measures would be adjusted once more than 70 per cen of residents had received their first dose.

South Korea will begin vaccinating the general public aged between 65 and 74 from tomorrow in over 12,000 clinics.

South Korea reported 707 new confirmed cases of the coronavirus yesterday, bringing the total tally to 137,682 infections, with 1,940 deaths. ― Reuters
