CORONAVIRUS Health officials disinfected a high school in the South Korean capital of Seoul, Monday, May 11, as schools prepare to reopen later this week. South Korea warned Sunday of the possibility of a second wave of COVID-19 infections. "It's not over until it's over," President Moon Jae-in told the nation Sunday as it reported new coronavirus infections at a one-month high. The spike in cases comes as South Korea had begun easing some pandemic restrictions, including reopening bars and nightclubs. South Korea has since again shut down more than 2,100 bars and other establishments in Seoul after the new cases were linked to people who frequented nightclubs last weekend. Many of the infections were traced to a 29-year-old man who went to three nightclubs before testing positive. Schools in South Korea were scheduled to begin reopening this week, but that may be delayed after the new outbreaks while officials say probes into the new cases would determine the next steps.
