Korea had reported no new coronavirus infections for four days running as of Friday.
The Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Thursday said, "We believe the virus has not become widespread but it is still too early to say the outbreak is coming to an end."
Among 28 patients diagnosed with the virus, seven have been released from hospital after making a full recovery and the rest are mostly in stable condition.
Some 193 evacuees from Wuhan, China, the epicenter of the outbreak, are also about to be released from quarantine since they have not tested positive for the duration of the latency period. The first group of Korean evacuees were quarantined since they arrived on Jan. 31.
