South Korea has reimplemented lock down restriction after seeing its biggest spike in coronavirus cases in more than 50 days.

Parks, museums and state-run theaters in Seoul will be shut down for the next two weeks beginning Friday to slow the spread of COVID-19. Officials advised residents in the metropolitan area to avoid unnecessary gatherings and urged companies to keep sick employees away from work.
