Fears mounting over virus spreading across nation again
The southern city of Daegu, the epicenter of the COVID-19 outbreak in Korea, has been hit by another cluster infection, while the greater Seoul area, Daejeon and Gwangju have continued to report consistent increases in the number of virus patients, according to health authorities Friday.
The worsening community transmission is raising fears that the virus is spreading across the nation again, after the country showed clear signs of a slowdown in new virus cases at the end of April.
Authorities are also paying keen attention to the southwestern city of Gwangju that was hit by cluster infection traced to a Buddhist temple.
