    Cases Increase but Remain Under 1,000 for 2 Consecutive Days

    The Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency reports 809 local infections, and 31 infected international arrivals, for a total of 840 new cases.

    That’s a sharp increase from 824 on Saturday and only 657 on Sunday. However, authorities say the weekend saw less testing due to the New Year’s holiday.

There are also new restrictions on foreigners. The KDCA says starting Friday, foreign nationals flying to South Korea must have a negative coronavirus test result within 72 hours of their departure.
