The National Land Infrastructure and Support Ministry coordinated a 10-minute synchronized light show that illuminated the night sky over the Han River in Seoul’s capital on July 6th.
Drones have been used to create images of medical workers in protective gear along with images of hand washing, people wearing masks and people socially distancing themselves from each other.
In order not to gather large crowds to watch the spectacle, the light show was not advertised ahead of time.
Although South Korea is often cited as an example of a country acting quickly to prevent the spread of Covid-19, new clusters are emerging in it.
South Korea reported 63 new confirmed Covid-19 cases on Saturday, 36 of which are transmitted locally and 27 are imported, Kwon Joon-wook, deputy director of the Korean Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told a briefing.
Among the cluster infections, 25 cases were related to an apartment in Uijeongbu, Gyeonggi, 16 cases were related to an indoor gym visited by a resident, 61 cases were related to a temple in Gwangju, and 24 to a church in Anyang, Gyeonggi Province.
“The mutated coronavirus was discovered in South Korea, and an epidemic research team was sent to Gwangju. It is worrying that the virus appears to be spreading faster than past cases in Daegu Province and northern Gyeongsang,” Kwon said.
