South Korea has reported its biggest single-day jump in a month with 34 more Coronavirus cases, bringing the country's total to 10,874, according to the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

In a televised address on the third anniversary of his inauguration, South Korean President Moon Jae-in warned of a second wave of the epidemic in the coming months.

"It's not over until it's over. While keeping enhanced alertness till the end, we must never lower our guard regarding epidemic prevention. We are in a prolonged war”, he said.

The new cases were primarily tracked down to a 29-year-old infected man who had visited nightclubs in Seoul’s Itaewon district on May 2.

South Korea was the first nation hit by the pandemic after China and had been seen as a model state in its aggressive testing and contact tracing, with zero or very few cases over the past 10 days. Over the last month it had seen an average of 10 daily cases.
