South Korea reported fewer than 50 new coronavirus cases for the second straight day on Tuesday, raising hope that perhaps the curve is flattening in the nation.
But new infection cases stemming from a 'late-night' entertainment establishment has become a new concern.
On Tuesday, health authorities reported that two female workers at the establishment in Seoul's Gangnam district were confirmed to have COVID-19.
Authorities say the two women may have come into contact with over one hundred other people.
This could result in a crackdown on such businesses, which remain open despite the strict measures on social distancing.
South Korean government had previously announced it will be conducting stricter inspections on such entertainment establishments everyday to make sure proper disinfection measures are in place.
