SEOUL, May 26, 2022 (Xinhua) – South Korea reported 18,816 new COVID-19 cases as of midnight Wednesday compared to 24 hours ago, raising the total number of infections to 18,036,720, the health authorities said Thursday.

The daily caseload was down from 23,956 in the previous day, and lower than 28,124 tallied a week earlier, according to the Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency (KDCA).

The number of infected people who were in a serious condition stood at 243, up six from the previous day. A total of 34 more deaths were confirmed, leaving the death toll at 24,063. The total fatality rate was 0.13 percent.
