South Korea on Saturday reported 565 new cases of COVID-19, a slight uptick from Friday's tally.
Most of the cases were local transmissions, with the capital region accounting for 75 percent of them.
Cluster infections have recently broken out at a church in Seoul, an auto parts company in Chungcheongbuk-do Province, as well as restaurants and schools across the country.
Out of the 40 imported cases, fourteen are believed to come from Indonesia.
This comes as more than 792-thousand people got vaccinated with their first shots on Friday, pushing the total up to over 22-percent of the population.
Five.six percent has been fully vaccinated.
