The Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) confirmed 87 new coronavirus cases on Friday, bringing up the total count to 8,652. On Wednesday, the South reported 152 new infections.

The daily count of new cases has been falling over the past week, despite a slight uptick on Thursday as small-scale outbreaks continued to emerge across the country.

“Of the new cases, 34 were from the hardest-hit city of Daegu where dozens of patients at several nursing homes have tested positive for the virus this week”, the KCDC data showed, as cited by Reuters.
