The government says it's now received applications for pandemic relief funds from 53 percent of the small businesses that are eligible for this round.
The Ministry of SMEs and Startups says that from last Wednesday to Sunday, it got applications from about 293-thousand businesses.
These are places that have faced limits on their business hours or other restrictions since the government reimposed strict distancing rules last month.
In this round of payments, the government has sent money to 100-thousand small business owners -- up to five million won each, or around four thousand dollars.
In total, it's paid out more than 420 million dollars.
