South Korea reported 344 new COVID-19 cases on Tuesday, remaining in the 300s for the third straight day.
The Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency(KDCA) said Tuesday that the new cases raised the country's cumulative total to 90-thousand-372.
The daily figure slightly fell from the previous day, mainly due to fewer tests over the weekend and the March First Independence Movement Day on Monday.
Of the 344 new cases detected throughout Monday, 319 were local infections, while 25 were imported.
About 75 percent of the local cases came from the greater metro area, with 120 in Seoul, 111 in Gyeonggi Province and ten in Incheon. Other parts of the nation added 78 cases.
One more death has been reported, bringing the death toll to one-thousand-606. The fatality rate stands at one-point-78 percent.
The number of critically ill coronavirus patients rose by four to 135.
