The Seoul government plans to apply stricter coronavirus-related restriction measures in the city due to the increasing number of new coronavirus cases, disease control official Park Yoo-mi revealed on Thursday.

"There appear to be blind spots that require further attention in the recent [coronavirus transmission] trend. We plan to talk to experts starting today to come up with stronger measures," Park announced.

Seoul registered record 213 COVID-19 cases in its latest update. The city has previously banned indoor seating at cafes and reduced the gatherings to a maximum of 10 people.
