The Seoul city government is pushing to implement an extreme assembly restriction measure that would ban gatherings of five or more people in the capital to slow the spread of the coronavirus, officials said Monday, APA reports citing Yonhap.

Its new administrative order for the restrictions on freedom of assembly may take effect on Christmas Eve in time for the peak season for year-end gatherings and events, the officials said.

The municipal government has been fine-tuning the new assembly restriction measure with the provincial government of Gyeonggi, which surrounds Seoul, and is planning to make an official announcement soon, they noted.
