South Korea reported 15 new cases of the coronavirus Wednesday, intensifying concerns of an outbreak following a lull in reported South Korean infections.

A total of 46 people in South Korea have been infected with the highly contagious virus,

Thirteen of the latest cases are in the area around Daegu, South Korea™s fourth largest city, according to the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC).

More than 1,000 people are being checked for the virus or are under quarantine, the Yonhap news agency reported Wednesday, citing figures from the KCDC.

No South Koreans are reported to have died from the virus. Twelve of the patients have made full recoveries and were discharged from quarantine.
