1. S. Korea on edge over largest yet mass infections in Seoul
 Seoul’s biggest-yet cluster of infections emerged in South Korea’s capital Tuesday, keeping health authorities on their toes despite the number of newly discovered infections slowing for the fourth consecutive day.
*keep on their toes: 에게 정신을 바짝 차리게[단단히 준비해 있게] 하다
 South Korea’s reported coronavirus cases rose by 131 to 7,513 with a total of 54 deaths, marking the lowest daily increase in two weeks, according to data tallied at Monday midnight by the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
*rise by: ~만큼 오르다.
 The new cluster in Seoul involves a total of 64 people, including employees at a call center in southwestern Seoul and their families, Seoul Mayor Park Won-soon said Tuesday, with an investigation into how the patients contracted the virus underway.
*contract: (병에) 옮다
 The number of confirmed cases linked to the call center in Guro-gu was feared to shoot up, given the working environment of the call center, at which employees sit close next to each other and constantly talk into phones.
*linked to: 연결된
*shoot up: (숫자등이) 급격히 올라가다
 Some 140 employees and trainees there were being tested for the virus as of Tuesday afternoon.

2. Shincheonji faces biggest crisis over coronavirus outbreak
 The novel coronavirus was apparently brought into the country from Wuhan, China. But it was a branch of an enigmatic Christian sect in Daegu that provided it with a breeding ground at home.
*bring into: ~으로 데려오다.
 The Shincheonji Church of Jesus, which operates under a veil of secrecy, abruptly came to the center of attention after one of its congregants tested positive for the virus Feb. 18.
*operate: 작동하다, 영업하다
 The case of the 61-year-old woman, known as COVID-19 patient No. 31, was linked to many others among followers who attended the same Sunday service at the Daegu branch in February.
*service: 예배 (종교적인 의미에서)
 Since then, Shincheonji has come under attack from all sides -- from the public, politicians and municipalities to mainstream Protestant churches that have denounced it as a cult.
*come under attack: 비난을 받다
 A petition uploaded to the presidential office’s website calling for the forcible dissolution of the religious sect had gathered more than 1.2 million signatures as of Monday morning.
