MERS Patients Grow to 25 with Four Suspected Patients in Gwangju and Jeollanamdo Testing Negative


The deadly Middle East Respiratory Syndrome had resulted in 2 deaths in Korea with 25 infected. Fortunately, all four suspected patients of MERS in Gwangju and Jeollanamdo have tested negative.

One of the two patients who passed away was a 57-year-old who was suffering from a number of chronic conditions such as asthma after having had contact with the first MERS patient last month at the same medical facility where more than 15 have been infected.

Health authorities said those who are aged 50 or older and those with chronic diseases related to kidney, lung and diabetes are the most vulnerable to MERS.

Officials in regional health centers have advised citizens to wash their hands often and thoroughly and cover their noses and mouths when coughing or sneezing to prevent possible infection or the spread of MERS.
