In South Korea, 193 coronavirus cases have been linked to a Seoul nightclub cluster, Vice Health Minister Kim Gang-lip said today.
The cluster, which was identified on May 9, is concentrated in the capital city's entertainment district of Itaewon.
The cases are believed to have begun after an infected 29-year-old went to several different clubs in the area, according to Seoul officials. Authorities used credit card records, cell phone data, and other methods to track down all the people who had visited Itaewon, and asked them all to be tested.
More than 65,000 people have been tested in relation to the cluster, said the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Monday.
New cases nationwide: The country reported 32 new cases on Tuesday, 24 of which were locally transmitted. There were no new deaths.
This brings the national total to 11,110 cases and 263 deaths, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.
