South Korea reports 86 new Covid19 cases, count rises to 10,000
Seoul: South Korea has reported 86 new cases of the coronavirus, bringing its caseload above 10,000.
South Korea's Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Friday said about half of the new cases came from the densely populous Seoul metropolitan area, where infections linked to international arrivals have been rising.
Another 22 infections were detected at airports where workers have been isolating and testing passengers arriving with fever or respiratory symptoms.
South Korea has been enforcing two-week quarantines on all passengers arriving from overseas since Wednesday to stem a rise in imported infections.
