Daily infections in South Korea reach 70K as a result of a “new virus wave.”

Due to the rapid transmission of a highly contagious Omicron subvariant, coronavirus infections are once again on the rise in South Korea, local media reported on Tuesday.

According to Yonhap News Agency, a total of 73,528 new cases were confirmed in the last 24 hours, more than doubling the number from the day before.

The surge, which began at the end of June, was linked by the Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency (KDCA) to the Omicron subvariant BA.

According to the data, the daily count increased to over 10,000 on June 29 for the first time in nearly three weeks, then crossed 20,000 on July 9, and then reached 40,000 last week.

The KDCA stated that the BA.5 subvariant accounted for 52 percent of all cases in the third week of July, up from the first week’s 24 percent, and warned that the nation has entered a “new virus wave.”

Additionally, 12 more virus-related fatalities occurred in South Korea over the previous day, bringing the total number of fatalities to 24,765.

The government has advised fourth vaccine shots for adults 50 and older as well as for people aged 18 and above who have underlying medical issues, the newspaper claimed, even though most virus limits have been loosened in the nation.
