Coronavirus: Cases In South Korea Jump Past 1,100

Japan mulls ban on big events for next 2 weeks to help stop spread of deadly virus.

Cases of the deadly coronavirus are spreading faster in South Korea, as the number jumped past 1,100 on Wednesday, local media reported. The people infected include a U.S. soldier posted in the country, Yonhap news reported. Korea's Center for Disease Control and Prevention said coronavirus cases reached 1,146 today, as nearly 210,000 followers of a particular Christian sect were being examined. Twelve people have died of the disease. Most new cases were centered at a branch of the sect – believed to be center of rapid infections – in the southeastern city of Daegu and a hospital in the neighboring county of Cheongdo. The report said that number of the new cases may jump in the coming days. Nearly 80% of cases were found among worshippers at the Shincheonji Church in Daegu and a hospital in the neighboring county of Cheongdo. Coronavirus also reached the U.S. military deployed in the country, which said one of its soldiers has also tested positive. Meanwhile, in Japan, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said he may direct big sports and cultural events organizers to consider halting their activities for next two weeks, Kyodo news reported. The move, he said, would help halt the spread of the fatal disease believed to have been transmitted to humans from animals. The country may also ban the entry of foreign nationals who recently visited the South Korean city of Daegu and neighboring county of Cheongdo – the epicenter of coronavirus in the country. - Death toll in China tops 2,700
