Almost 40 more cases of COVID-19 have been reported at an unaccredited international school in the central city of Daejeon, where 127 cases were confirmed Sunday. 

According to health authorities in Gangwon Province on Tuesday, 37 students and two pastors from IEM School tested positive for the virus the previous day in Hongcheon in the province. 

The pastors and 38 students were reportedly staying at a church in Hongcheon since January 16. The test results for one of the students has not been confirmed yet. 

The pastors reportedly brought the students to the church after some students at their school in Daejeon showed coronavirus symptoms. 
 
Health authorities conducted virus tests on them on Monday afternoon immediately after finding out that they were staying in Hongcheon.
