594 fresh coronavirus cases in South Korea, global death toll over 2000

Amid the escalating death tolls, South Korea on Saturday has 594 more cases Coronavirus, leading to 2931 total cases. The  viral outbreak that began in China has infected more than 83,000 people globally. The World Health Organization has named the illness COVID-19, referring to its origin late last year and the coronavirus that causes it.

Meanwhile, the Hawaiian Airlines said on Wednesday it would suspend flights to South Korea amid a spike in cases of the new coronavirus and declining demand for tickets in the country.

The airline said it won’t fly between Honolulu and Incheon International Airport near Seoul from March 2 through April 30.

Hawaiian Airlines CEO Peter Ingram said the move is prudent given a surge in COVID-19 cases in South Korea and declining demand for leisure travel from South Korea amid the outbreak.

The World health officials say the illness had now spread to 37 countries.
