South Korea expected to report vaccine plans as coronavirus cases surge


South Korea reported 594 new coronavirus cases on Tuesday (Dec 8) as the government prepared to outline its plans to secure enough vaccine candidates to potentially vaccinate millions of people next year.

Officials are expected to disclose how many doses the country has secured so far and when those vaccines will be available, Yonhap news agency reported, citing a foreign ministry official.

Unlike South Korea's previous two waves of infections, which were largely focused around a handful of facilities or events, the new wave is being driven by smaller, harder-to-trace clusters in and around the densely populated capital city of Seoul.
