Fears Over MERS of Universiade Delegation Have Vanished


Fears over Middle East Respiratory Syndrome or MERS, which have been the biggest obstacle to a successful hosting of the 2015 Gwangju Summer Universiade, seemed to have vanished among the delegations.


While the world’s best Russian rhythmic gymnast, Margarita Mamun, decided not to participate in the competition due to worries about MERS, an American track and field athlete, Dondre Echoles, commented that she has enjoyed the event comfortably without worries.


Many of the athletes who expressed their wariness and as delegations were often seen wearing masks at airports, train stations and the athletes’ village. However, concerns over the virus did not last long as the organizing committee took great pains to keep the athletes’ village clean and repeatedly operated heat sensors.  No MERS patient were found.
