South Korea added 106 more cases of COVID-19 on Tuesday, staying below 200 for nearly two weeks, amid enhanced social distancing measures nationwide.

The Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency confirmed 91 local infections and 15 imported cases in the last 24 hours, bringing the overall tally to 22,391.

Four more virus-related fatalities were also reported, raising the death toll to 367.

Despite signs of a slowdown in infections, health authorities are still grappling with sporadic clusters and cases with unknown transmission routes.

According to the latest data, 23.5 percent of new cases over the past two weeks were untraceable, while nearly 31 percent were linked to cluster outbreaks.

Authorities are also closely monitoring mortality figures as the rising number of patients in serious or critical condition in the country reached 158.

The government said it will continue to enforce relatively laxed Level 2 social distancing for at least the next two weeks as it works to bring down coronavirus cases to a manageable level.

Meanwhile, there are growing concerns over another potential rebound in infections later this month when the country celebrates the Chuseok fall harvest holiday.
