VON

South Korea has reported a daily record of 1,784 COVID-19 cases, breaking a mark set last week, as the authorities struggled to get on top of a surge in outbreaks linked to the Delta variant.

The Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency (KDCA) said, more than half the total 1,741 Delta variant cases since December were diagnosed last week.

Genetic analysis of 2,381 infections last week found nearly 40% were the Delta variant. Transmission rates have been kept relatively low across the country despite no lockdowns.
