S Korea’s Daily Tally of New COVID Infections Stayed in the Low 100s for a 3d Consecutive Day

September 15, 2020

SEOUL, South Korea — South Korea’s daily tally of new coronavirus infections has stayed in the low 100s for a third consecutive day, maintaining a downward trajectory.

The 106 cases added Tuesday by the Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency brought the country’s total reported cases to 22,391 with 367 deaths since the pandemic began.

South Korea’s daily increase has remained in triple digits for more than a month, but the number has gone down recently in the wake of stringent social distancing rules.

The government on Monday relaxed physical distancing guidelines in the greater Seoul area, the heart of a recent viral resurgence. A ban on a late-night dining at restaurants has been lifted, while cafes and bakeries can have customers eat and drink inside their shops, and indoor gyms and after-school academics reopened.
