South Korea is back in the spotlight again, because of the emergence of a new spreading cluster caused by the super spreader (super transmission).
This brings the total corona cases in South Korea to 17,665 positive cases, 309 deaths, and 14,219 recoveries to date.
A super spreader without wearing a mask at Starbucks Paju managed to infect 55 other people who were also not wearing masks.
But the staff there are not exposed to wearing masks.
As Yonhap reported, exposure to Covid-19 in a closed environment poses a risk of contracting the disease.
Air conditioning can also increase the risk further when people breathe in a closed environment.
Apart from Starbucks Paju, in early August, health authorities identified more than 15 cases linked to the Hollys Coffee shop in Gangnam Ward, southern Seoul.
