South Korea’s prime minister says the country is facing an “emergency” after another rise in coronavirus cases.
Dozens have been linked to a church in the eastern city of Daegu. The government is increasing medical resources to try and stop any further spread.
The virus has also spread in Iran, which reported two further deaths among 13 new cases, bringing the total number of deaths there to four.
Lebanon also announced its first confirmed case.
In Iran the outbreak is centred on the holy city of Qom, south of the capital Tehran, but health ministry official Minou Mohrez said the virus may already have spread to “all cities in Iran”.
The case in Lebanon was a 45-year-old woman who had travelled from Qom, Lebanese Health Minister Hassan Hamad said.
