South Korea bans large gatherings, shut nightspots, churches and removed fans from professional sports nationwide

South Korea has ordered the closure of  large gatherings, nightspots, churches and removed fans from professional sports nationwide as the Coronavirus ( Covid-19) cases increase in the country. 

Health Minister Park Neung-hoo announced the new measures after officials reported 332 newly confirmed cases, marking the ninth straight day of triple-digit increases.

Most of the new cases were in the Seoul metropolitan area, which has been at the centre of the viral surge of recent weeks. 

But infections were also reported in practically every major city and in towns across the country.

The government had already imposed the tighter restrictions in the capital region earlier this week, a move they resisted for months out of economic concerns.

Report has shown that more than 22.8 million people have been diagnosed with COVID-19 around the world, and more than 14.6 million have recovered. More than 797,000 people have died, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.
