SEOUL — South Korea had its highest-ever number of new daily COVID-19 infections of 1,378 in the last 24 hours, the Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency said on Saturday.

Starting on Monday, coronavirus curbs will be tightened to the strictest level possible in Seoul and neighboring regions for the first time, South Korea said on Friday, as a streak of record new COVID-19 cases fanned concern.
