Hundreds of buses in South Korean capital Seoul were fumigated on Wednesday (February 26), amid rising coronavirus cases across the country.

Seoul Facilities Corporation said they disinfected a total of 465 buses at public car park on Wednesday afternoon.

Since February 20, the city began disinfecting the interior of public buses daily after every full round, while the exteriors are being disinfected once a week.

Earlier in the day, South Korea reported 169 new coronavirus cases, including a U.S. soldier, as health authorities readied an ambitious plan to test more than 200,000 members of a church hit hardest by the country’s outbreak.

The new cases pushed the total tally to 1,146, with the numbers expected to rise as the government widens its testing.
