South Korea Sees A Steady Rise of New COVID-19 Cases

SEOUL, South Korea — South Korea has reported 75 new cases of the coronavirus as infections steadily rise in the greater capital area.

The figures released by the Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency Tuesday brought the national caseload to 24,239, including 422 deaths.

Fifty-four cases were reported in the Seoul metropolitan area, home to half of the country’s 51 million population, where infections have been tied to various places and groups, including churches, restaurants and workers. At least 36 troops have tested positive at an army unit in Pocheon, north of Seoul, while 14 other infections were tied to a hospital in nearby Euijeongbu.

There’s concern that infections will grow in the coming weeks due to increased travel during the five-day Chuseok harvest holiday that ended Sunday.
