Daily COVID-19 cases in South Korea are back in the 400s. 

The Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency (KDCA) said Saturday that 418 new cases were reported throughout Friday, raising the country's accumulated caseload to 92-thousand-55.

Of the new cases, 404 were local transmissions and 14 were imported.

The great majority of domestic cases, over 78 percent, come from the wider metro area including 126 in Seoul and 172 in Gyeonggi Province.

Five more people have died, bringing the death toll to one-thousand-632, with the fatality rate at one-point-77 percent.

The number of critically ill coronavirus patients stands at 136. 

Meanwhile, authorities also noted a testing error that occurred last month in Seoul and subtracted that case from the total infection tally.
