SEOUL, April 14 — South Korea has recorded 731 new coronavirus cases, the Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency (KDCA) said today, as the country battles to stem the number of infections with more testing and vaccination efforts.

New cases are centered on the greater Seoul area and have spread to over a dozen city and provinces despite rigid social distancing rules.

The latest cases on Tuesday bring the total to 111,419 infections, with 1,782 deaths.

Health authorities said on Tuesday they would consider the use of Covid-19 self-test kits despite their relatively low accuracy amid fears of a potential fourth wave of outbreaks.

South Korea has rolled out around 45,000 negative polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests a day earlier.

South Korea has given a first dose of AstraZeneca Plc and Pfizer Covid-19 vaccines to near 1.24 million, and over 60,000 have taken booster shots as of Tuesday, the KDCA data said.

Additional 250,000 doses of Pfizer/BioNTech vaccines have arrived today, adding to the million doses that have been shipped earlier in March, for people aged 75 and older and high-risk groups in nursing homes.

The government has secured enough Covid-19 vaccines to cover 79 million people, for more than its 52 million population, including those from Novavax, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson and the Covax global vaccine sharing scheme. — Reuters
