SEOUL, Oct 13 (Reuters) - South Korea reported 102 new coronavirus cases as of Monday midnight, marking the first triple-digit increase in six days, the Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency (KCDA) said on Tuesday.
Daily infections had fallen largely into the double-digit range in the past two weeks, which led the government to relax some rules on social distancing this week. (Reporting by Hyonhee Shin; Editing by Himani Sarkar)
