A petition calling for South Korean President Moon Jae-in's impeachment over his handling of the crisis had gathered more than 687,000 signatures yesterday.


The petition hit out at Mr Moon for not banning all visitors from China, where the coronavirus originated. Only visitors from China's Hubei province are banned from entering.


The petition also criticised him for sending three million face masks to China. The petition was filed with the presidential Blue House on Feb 4.


The petitioner wrote: "Seeing Moon Jae-in's response to the new coronavirus, I feel that he is more of a President for China than Korea.


"We cannot just watch this catastrophe anymore.... I call for impeachment."


Korea reported 505 new infections yesterday, taking the overall national tally to 1,766, adding an 11th person had died.


The vast majority - 90 per cent - of the new infections were in Daegu and the neighbouring province of North Gyeongsang, which between them account for the bulk of the national total.


An American soldier stationed at Camp Carroll 30km north of Daegu tested positive, commanders said, the first infection among the 28,500 US troops in South Korea. The 23-year-old had been put in self-quarantine at his home, US Forces Korea said, adding it was conducting "contact tracing".
