Covid numbers surge with daily infection cases over 700 for first time in 10 days Updated: 2021-05-08 09:41:51 KST

South Korea reported 701 new infections on Saturday, quite a sharp rise, considering that it's the first time in 10 days that the country has seen more than 700 daily cases.
Infections in the greater Seoul area accounted for almost 70 percent of the locally transmitted cases.
Regions outside the capital also saw a rise in infections, notably Ulsan which reported 47 local infections following an outbreak from one of its bathhouses that initially resulted in 11 new infections.
With holidays like parents' day and Buddha's birthday in May, health authorities are worried that the celebrations will lead to even more infections.
