South Korea on Sunday decided to extend nationwide virus curbs under way since late August by another week, as untraceable cases coupled with cluster infections still persist ahead of the Chuseok holiday.

Under the decision, the country will maintain the Level 2 social distancing scheme, which has been in place since August 23, for all areas of the country through September 27. The measures were originally set to end today.

South Korea operates a three-tier social distancing system. Under the second level, all indoor gatherings of 50 or more people are banned, while the ceiling is 100 for outdoor meetings.
