Of the new cases, seven came from overseas, the KCDC said.

Buoyed by the signs of a slowdown, the country on Sunday said it would maintain the social distancing drive against the coronavirus by two more weeks until early May with less intensity, easing the guidelines for religious gatherings and recruitment tests.

The nation’s death toll from the coronavirus, which emerged in China late last year, rose by two to 236, the authorities said.
