South Korea today reported 76 new coronavirus cases and three deaths, the drop of new cases to double digit for the first time in over three weeks. This comes after President Moon Jae-in declared the hardest hit provinces special disaster zones.

Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, KCDC,  Deputy Director Kwon Jun-wook told in a briefing today that forty-one of the new coronavirus cases were from Daegu, where a secretive church at the center of the outbreak is located. The church has been linked to over 61% of cases.
