This means that the current number of coronavirus cases in South Korea has exceeded 5,000, with the national total standing at 5,328, as well as 32 deaths directly linked to the coronavirus.

As you can imagine with such a sharp increase on a day-by-day basis, hospitals in the worst-hit areas, such as Daegu, have been stretched thin in terms of resources. It has been reported that over 2,300 patients are still waiting to be admitted to hospitals and temporary medical outposts.
