South Korea today reported 6-hundred-10 new cases of COVID-19, a decline 

from recent days, but as usual, fewer tests are done on the weekend. On the 

vaccination front, the government said it's going to provide more incentives to

people who get fully vaccinated. The authorities also asked people not to worry, 

and offered reassurances that vaccine supplies are coming in. Lee Kyung-eun 

has the latest. Reporter: In a bid to boost public participation, South Korean Prime

Minister Kim Boo-kyum pledged to provide more incentives for people who get 

fully vaccinated. In a briefing Sunday, Kim expressed hope of returning to normalcy

by September when herd immunity is achieved, citing the example of the U.S. 

where CDC guidelines say fully vaccinated people no longer have to wear masks. 

But he added, that doesn't mean quickly loosening the distancing rules, pointing to

the UK, where measures are still in place, even when half of its population has 

been vaccinated. PM Kim Boo-kyum: "I ask related ministries to devise a set of

incentives for fully vaccinated people, to the extent these measures don't harm

the country's containment efforts." Reporter: These measures would include 

signing vaccine passport deals with other countries, and issuing vaccine 

certificates on paper in addition to the digital ones. South Korea is trying to boost

participation as it takes vaccine reservations for people over 60 some 48 percent

of eligible recipients have signed up, but the Prime Minister called for greater 

participation, stressing that the vaccine is safe. And in their briefing the same day,

the health authorities said there are enough doses for the campaign to go ahead

as planned. SOn Youngrae: "The government has more than enough vaccine doses

to inoculate 13 million people by the end of June, as promised. Now it's time to 

focus our efforts on the actual inoculations, not the supply." Reporter: The arrival 

of more shipments will also allow South Korea to resume giving first doses of Pfizer

to new recipients, which has currently been halted. Lee Kyung-eun, Arirang News.
