South Korea becomes first country to announce second wave of coronavirus

South Korea is in the midst of a “second wave” of coronavirus infections, health officials claimed on Monday.

Until now the country had been hailed a success story for its handling of the worldwide virus pandemic. However, the Korea Centers for Disease Control (KCDC) said on Monday that a rise in new cases signalled a second wave in the capital of Seoul.

Health minister Park Neung-hoo said 90 imported cases had been identified over the past week, a sharp rise from the previous week’s 48.

He said: “The government faces a grave situation as health officials need not only to contain locally transmitted infections, but also manage imported cases.”

‘We won’t be closing the country again’: Trump plays down chance of a second coronavirus wave as cases continue to mount

President Donald Trump has said the US will not conduct another coronavirus shutdown even as new cases spiked across several states where measures have been eased.

“We won’t be closing the country again. We won’t have to do that,” Mr Trump said on Wednesday night during an interview with Fox News.

Those comments came as six American states announced all-time highs for new Covid-19 infections on Tuesday.

The states – Arizona, Florida, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas and Nevada – have now seen thousands contract coronavirus since phased reopened began some two weeks ago.

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow and treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin have also reiterated that the United States could not shut down again.
