      The 505 new cases, marking the sharpest daily spike yet and outnumbering the 433 new cases reported in China, where the virus originated, earlier in the day, took the nation's total infections to 1,766, according to the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC).

      A 75-year-old virus patient who is tied to the religious sect in Daegu died of respiratory failure earlier Thursday, bringing the nation's death toll to 13.

      Amid lingering concerns about a so-called community spread, sporadic cases in other cities and provinces have been growing. Untraceable virus cases or confirmed cases that are in the process of having their origins tracked down stood at 717.

                                About 42 percent of confirmed cases here, or 840 cases, had been tied to a branch of the Shincheonji religious sect in the southeastern city of Daegu. Most other cases with unknown origins are believed to be linked to the religious sect, KCDC said.

                                Only 1.6 percent of the total infections, or 33 cases, are tied to people who had recently traveled overseas or come in contact with them, KCDC said.
