South Korea has reported a new daily high for coronavirus cases, putting pressure on authorities to extend their toughest distancing rules.

 

The 1,784 cases confirmed slot game in the previous 24-hour period is the biggest single-day jump since the pandemic began. The new cases brought the country's total to 182,265 cases, with 2,060 deaths from COVID-19.

 

South Korea's daily caseload has been above 1,000 for the past two weeks amid a slow vaccination program, lax public vigilance and the spread of the more contagious delta variant of the virus. A majority of new cases are in the densely populous Seoul metropolitan area, but officials have recently warned the virus is spreading beyond the capital region.

 

HERE'S WHAT ELSE IS HAPPENING:

 

TOPEKA, Kan. — Families and advocates for the elderly in Kansas argue that with most nursing home residents vaccinated against the coronavirus, some facilities need to relax visiting rules.
