South Korea has reported 15 new cases of the coronavirus Wednesday.
The total number of coronavirus infected people in the country has reached 46. South Korean health officials this week warned of a possible “new phase” of the outbreak.
The virus has killed more than 2,000 people and infected more than 75,000 worldwide.
South Korean President Moon Jae-in said Tuesday that the situation is “more serious than we thought,” adding that “emergency steps” are needed to contain the economic fallout.
