    Coronavirus infections in Korea have rebounded to over 50,000 cases a day after the Halloween weekend for the first time in a month and a half, reaching 58,376 on Tuesday morning.
    The number fell slightly to 54,766 on Wednesday morning, but with the approach of cold weather, concerns are growing over a resurgence of COVID this winter.

    Deaths and severe cases have remained more or less the same, at 30 and 303 on Wednesday.
