Prime Minister Kim Boo-kyum expressed regret Wednesday as new COVID-19 cases skyrocketed to over 90,000 despite the public's continued cooperation in efforts to block the virus spread.

In a interagency COVID response meeting, Kim indicated that the government it still stably managing the situation with its preemptive measures.

He emphasized that the medical system hasn't had any major problems yet, adding they are continuing to roll out booster vaccine shots, secured hospital beds in advance and expanded at-home treatments for patients.

At the same time, the prime minister urged those with COVID symptoms to get screened immediately.

He also reassured the public will have enough self-test kits through the end of next month amid supply concerns.

Kim said the government will decide whether to adjust current social distancing rules on Friday after considering both the spread of the Omicron variant and damage to people's livelihoods stemming from months of tightened antivirus curbs.
