The number of people who were infected with COVID-19 and died in places other than hospitals, such as at their homes, hit a monthly high of 250 in August, the National Police Agency has said.

The NPA said Monday that the August figure far surpassed the previous record of 132, marked in January, and surged from 31 in July. Since comparable data became available in March last year, the cumulative number has risen to 817.
