More than 200 schools across South Korea have been forced to return to online teaching just days after being allowed back in classrooms.

Most of the affected schools are in an area outside of Seoul which has seen a fresh outbreak of the virus, according to a BBC report Friday.

Earlier on Thursday, South Korea reported 79 new cases within 24 hours - its highest number in two months.
