COVID-19 test case total number South Korea 2020

As of March 30, 2020, over 395 thousand coronavirus (COVID-19) tests were conducted in South Korea. South Korea is using various methods, a drive-thru style of testing or using at-home testing kits, to test probable infection cases. Since most of all infections were related to Shincheonji Church in the early stage, the government of South Korea announced that it will test all of the over 200 thousand members of Shincheonji for the coronavirus.

South Korea confirmed 9,661 cases of infection including 158 deaths after the first case of coronavirus in the country on January 20. Although the distribution of infected cases is concentrated in Daegu and Gyeongbuk attributed to one religious group, small group infections continue to spread across the country and the number of cases imported from abroad is also increasing.
