South Koreans hold the election

South Koreans are heading to the polls despite the threat of the coronavirus pandemic. They’re voting for 300 members of the National Assembly.

Masks, temperature checks, plastic gloves and 1m distance are all mandatory to reduce the risk of infection for the 44 million eligible voters.

Turnout is already at over 50%, with several hours of voting still to go.

Early in the day the highest turnout was in Daegu, which had been hardest hit by the Covid-19 outbreak.

The government’s handling of the pandemic has dominated discussions during this election, along with worries over the slowing economy.
