Prime Minister Chung Sye-kyun has asked for more patience and cooperation from the public as the country continues to battle a surge in coronavirus clusters ahead of the Lunar New Year holiday.

He made the remark during an interagency meeting on COVID-19 response efforts on Monday as small business owners have expressed serious concerns about further blows to their operations after authorities extended strict social distancing rules over the weekend.

Chung said there is a possibility the government could consider easing coronavirus restrictions before the holiday period that begins on February 11, if the country continues to report a downward trend in cases this week.

But he said some form of antivirus curbs will still need to be enforced until herd immunity is achieved.

He added that South Korea's quarantine strategy will also change once coronavirus vaccines are rolled out.
