[아시아경제 이준형 기자] The Seoul Metropolitan Government announced on Monday that the number of new confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Seoul during the 21-hour period from 00:00 to 9pm on Monday 5 was tentatively counted. Seven cases were imported from abroad and 292 cases were domestic.

There are three hours left before the countdown for a day ends, but the 21-hour provisional count has surpassed the total count of 205 people on the 28th of last month, which was the most on Monday this year. Compared to the same time period, there were 1 fewer people than the previous day (4th) and 103 more than the 196 people on Monday (June 28) last week. The previous day, the total number of confirmed cases was 307.

However, it is expected to fall short of the all-time high of 552 people on a single day in Seoul since the start of the Corona 19 crisis early last year (552 people on December 24 of last year) or the highest number on Monday (522 people on December 28 of last year).

The number of daily confirmed cases in Seoul surged to more than 300 every day at the end of last year, but gradually declined this year. However, from mid-January to early April of this year, it stayed around 100 almost every day, and then started to increase again. From the end of last month, it increased to a level comparable to the end of last year and the beginning of this year.

In the last week (June 28 to July 4), 205 → 375 → 333 → 346 → 359 → 289 → 307, an average of 316 people per day. The highest daily number of confirmed cases this year was 375 on the 29th of last month.

As of 9 p.m. on the 5th, the cumulative number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Seoul stood at 51,920. The total number of confirmed cases on that day will be summarized as of 00:00 on the next day, the 6th, and will be announced in the morning.
