The head of the Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency, Jeong Eun-kyeong, has said 70 percent of the South Korean public will be fully vaccinated by Monday.

Jeong offered the projection on Wednesday during a parliamentary audit of her agency, adding that the milestone could come as early as this weekend.

She also told lawmakers that the committee tasked with creating a plan for the country's gradual return to pre-pandemic life was in the process of discussing potential measures, including details about when they should be implemented.

Health authorities have said the country may begin transitioning to a "living with COVID" strategy as early as November.

The government's envisioned return to normalcy amid the pandemic includes treating the novel coronavirus like seasonal flu and easing some social distancing measures, while keeping a quarantine protocol in place to contain future outbreaks.
