The health ministry said Friday that the country's medical system will be able to handle up to 2,000 critically ill COVID-19 patients.

The remarks come amid a rise in such patients as well as a spike in infections.

Ministry spokesman Son Young-rae also said in a briefing that at-home treatment is going smoothly despite some hurdles at first.

According to government data, as of earlier in the day, over 314,500 people were recovering from the disease at home.

He added that an adjustment to social distancing rules will be announced Friday.

Currently, there is a 9 p.m. curfew for multiuse facilities such as restaurants and cafes and a six person cap on private social gatherings.

Authorities are reportedly looking to extend business hours until 10 p.m. and expand the limit for get-togethers to eight.
