South Korea’s coronavirus outbreak is entering a “grave situation,” the country’s Prime Minister Chung Sye-kyun said during a press briefing, adding the government is “doing its best to prevent the spread.”

He urged people to refrain from attending events where many people gather, such as religious events, or to consider other ways such as online meetings.

Chung also said that the government will “sternly deal” with acts that interfere with the country’s quarantine efforts, such as illegal hoarding of hygiene products and mass rallies.
