S. Korea has 116 repeated cases of COVID-19

Director of the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) Jeong Eun-kyeong said on Monday that there are 116 people who, after reportedly being recovered, again tested positive to coronavirus.

He commented virus may have been "reactivated" rather than the patients being re-infected. At least 7,447 South Koreans have been reported as recovered but officials say that the number of people again struck by coronavirus may increase.

South Korea reported only 25 new cases of infections on Monday and Prime Minister Chung Sye-kyun said the government would soon be looking to loosen the restrictions regarding social distancing.
