South Korea puts world to shame on coronavirus: East Asian nation reports just EIGHT new cases after two-month lockdown resulted in 234 deaths so far

South Korea today reported just eight new cases of coronavirus as the country's daily increase dropped to single figures for the first time in two months.

The East Asian nation has now confirmed 10,661 cases of the virus, which has killed 234 people in South Korea throughout the global pandemic.

A further 8,042 patients have recovered and been released from quarantine, the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said, while 12,243 others were today undergoing testing for Covid-19.

'We must not loosen our guard until the last confirmed patient is recovered,' South Korea President Moon Jae-in said.
