    South Korea has new daily high for 2nd day in a row - Times of India
    SEOUL: South Korea reports 1,842 newly confirmed coronavirus cases in the past 24 hours – setting a new one-day pandemic record for the second day in a row.
    The cases announced on Thursday increased the country’s total cargo to 184,103, with 2,063 deaths from Covid-19.
    The new cases include 270 sailors who were recently taken home after a large-scale outbreak of their destroyer on an anti-piracy mission in East Africa.
    South Korea has seen an increase in infections in recent weeks amid a slow vaccination campaign, loose public vigilance and the spread of a more contagious delta variant.
    The country’s daily load was over 1,000 for 16 consecutive days.
    Health officials say they are discussing whether to extend the toughest remote restrictions in Seoul’s densely populated metropolitan area.
