We start with the COVID-19 situation in South Korea.
The country reported 153 new COVID-19 cases on Thursday, climbing once again into the mid-100s.
Local transmissions rose significantly to 145, mostly from the densely populated capital area.
An additional 8 cases come from overseas bringing the total number of cases in the country to over 22,600.
Five new deaths have been reported, with the death toll rising to 372.
The rise in cases comes as new cluster infections emerge, with at least ten cases related to a Kia Motors factory, and 14 linked to a children's book company- both in Gyeonggi-do Province.
