The total number of people released from quarantine after making full recoveries stood at 10,194, up 32 from the previous day, according to the authorities.

Applicants for this year's school qualification examination have their temperatures checked at a middle school in Seoul on May 23, 2020. The exam for a general equivalency diploma was supposed to be held in April but was delayed twice due to the coronavirus. (Yonhap)
