The Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported 62 cases from the previous day, raising the total caseload to 13,479.

Forty-three of the latest infections were brought in from overseas, including 18 detected at border checkpoints, marking the second largest number of imported cases after 51 overseas infections were reported on March 25.

The 19 other cases were locally transmitted, most of them linked to cluster infections in the capital region.

No new fatalities were reported by the KCDC, leaving the death toll unchanged at 289.
