South Korea has reported only two fresh cases of the new coronavirus as its outbreak continues to slow down.

The Korea Centres for Disease Control and Prevention on Wednesday said the tally stood at 10,806 infections and 255 deaths.

Both new cases were detected during screening at airports and that no fresh local transmissions were reported from South Korean cities and towns.

The imported cases have declined in recent weeks as authorities stepped up border controls, such as imposing two-day quarantines on all passengers arriving from abroad.

South Korean authorities also have relaxed social distancing guidelines and are preparing to reopen school. South Korea's professional baseball league began its new season without fans in the stands on Tuesday.
