The rallies have revived memories of a major COVID-19 outbreak following a political protest in August.

SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korea will impose stricter social distancing rules for the greater Seoul area a month after easing them, officials said on Tuesday, warning of an even bigger crisis if anti-COVID-19 efforts fail to dampen a spike in new cases. South Korea has been one of the world’s coronavirus mitigation success stories after tackling the first major COVID-19 epidemic outside China with aggressive tracing and testing, but continues to battle persistent rises in infections. “Our anti-coronavirus efforts are facing a crisis,” Prime Minister Chung Sye-kyun told a meeting. Nearly 68% of the 202 domestic infections came from the greater Seoul area. Health authorities warned the daily tally could go as high as 400 in coming weeks, asking citizens to stick to strict hygiene rules and minimise year-end celebrations.
