More than half the additional cases were found to be linked to a church in the southeastern city of Daegu after a 61-year-old woman known as “Patient 31”, who attended services there, tested positive for the virus last week, KCDC said in a statement.
The coronavirus originated in China and has spread to more than two dozen countries.
