South Korea is testing a new QR code tracking system to track visitors in entertainment establishments, restaurants and churches as he struggles to contain a persistent infection group. It comes as PakistanThe prime minister, Imran Khan, called for people to “live with the virus”.

The Covid-19 church-related cluster of 40 cases in the Seoul metropolitan area has been the third major turmoil in recent weeks, following more than 250 infections come from nightclubs and bars in the capital and at least 112 cases in the logistics center in Bucheon, west of Seoul.

Starting June 10, visitors to nightclubs, bars, karaoke clubs, daytime discos, indoor gyms that hold group exercises and indoor standing concert halls will be asked to use one of a number of commercially available applications to produce a personalized QR code. times that can be scanned at the door.

The decision to try the codes came after authorities struggled to track down people in a nightclub outbreak because much of the information on handwritten visitor records was found to be fake or incomplete.

While infections from the group have recently subsided, there are fears of a surge when 1.8 million school students return to class on Wednesday.

In Pakistan The prime minister has defended his decision to revoke almost all locking measures due to economic losses, because deaths and infections continue to increase. In a televised address, Khan said his government was unable to continue to provide cash assistance to the poor on a large scale.

“Our condition does not allow us to continue to feed them money, how long can we give them money?” he said, adding that around 130 million to 150 million people were badly affected by the closure.

The country will be open to tourism but cinemas, theaters and schools will remain closed. Khan urged people to act responsibly but said more infections and deaths could not be avoided.

“This virus will spread more. I must say with regret that there will be more deaths, “Khan warned. “If people are careful, they can live with viruses.”

New ZealandThe prime minister, Jacinda Ardern, said restrictions could be reduced faster than planned because the country was “ahead of schedule”. The cabinet will decide next Monday whether to move to level-1 restrictions – the softest – the next two weeks when the government has planned to make that decision. New Zealand did not have a Covid-19 case for 11 consecutive days.

It is believed that level-1 restrictions will not involve many things other than continuing border closure. This does not apply to the international film crew Avatar 2, who was given special permission to arrive and start shooting. The director, James Cameron, and 55 members of his crew arrived on a private charter flight over the weekend, with many people angry that they were given an exception.
