South Korea today set a terrifying record for new coronavirus infections, which broke the 90,000-barrier for the first time and have almost doubled in a week due to the spread of the most contagious Omicron variant.

The Korea Office of Disease Control and Prevention (KCDA) announced that 90,443 cases of SARS-CoV-2 were confirmed in the 24 hours to midnight Tuesday and 39 patients died due to complications of COVID-19.
