South Korea has reported 105 new cases of the covid-19 on Sunday, increasing the country’s total to 9,538. The Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in a statement that fatalities increased by eight, to 152.
The outbreak in South Korea has been gradually taking a slow pace after it recorded hundreds of new cases of virus infections each day and once became the second hardest-hit country in the world earlier this month. There are still worries about continuing cases in the Seoul metropolitan area or those from returning from foreign countries.
The KCDC says 35 of the 105 new cases were reported in Seoul and its surrounding Gyeonggi province, where more than half of South Korea’s 51 million people live. It says 5,033 of the total 9,538 cases have recovered and been released from quarantine.
