10 suspected MERS cases test negative

10 suspected MERS cases test negative

 

All 10 people who had shown symptoms of the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) tested negative for the disease.

 

The Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) said Wednesday one person who came into close contact with a MERS patient, as well as another nine people who came into ordinary contact with him have all been released as they tested negative.

 

Reportedly, experts said that the possible spread is most likely to have been contained as the 5-day incubation period for MERS has passed.

 

The released people will further be monitored by the KCDC as the longest incubation period reported is 14 days.

 

On Saturday, a 61-year-old man was diagnosed with the disease after returning home from his visit to Kuwait.
