    The Seoul Metropolitan government is spending just over one million U.S. dollars to disinfect religious facilities in the city.

    The move aims to alleviate mounting Coronavirus fears as more than half of the confirmed cases were linked to the Shincheonji religious group.

    An official from the city added that he hopes the fund will ease anxiety towards religious facilities in general.

    Each of the 25 districts in Seoul will receive around 41-thousand U.S. dollars.

    The districts will then survey the demand for disinfection among churches and temples to set up further plans.
