    Senior residents in South Korea’s Jung-gu district were able to enjoy a 50-minute pool session on June 17, 2021, following the resumption of services at public swimming pools. The local government reopened public pools as part of a set of incentives to ramp up its vaccination drive. The district is also offering free meals to those who’ve been fully vaccinated to encourage more people to get immunised.
