    China's Response to MERS Proper: Expert

    2015-06-03 08:55:46 CRIENGLISH.com Web Editor: Xu

    ...
    Zhong Nanshan is a doctor specializing in respiratory diseases, who earned international fame during the struggle against the deadly SARS epidemic in 2003.

    Along with other medical experts, Zhong visited Huizhou Municipal Central hospital on Tuesday and entered into the intensive care unit housing the first MERS patient in China.

    Zhong says he is impressed by measures taken by the hospital. All nearby rooms to the ICU have been emptied so as to reduce the risk of virus transmission.

    "As we have adopted such strict quarantine measures, MERS cannot be spread through air, it cannot even be spread in hospitals. I think we have done well in the quarantine work. We have isolated spaces and pay attention to cross infection. So we should not worry about its spread."
    ...
    Zhong also discussed treatment options and found that the patient's condition was stable, but at a low level.

    "His lung infection became a little worse in the past two days. But his clinical situation turned better today. I think that's a stable condition at a low level, a little better. Why we are so cautious to say this? Because we know little about MERS in China and this disease fluctuates sometimes. So we'll see what happens."

              A South Korean man who became China's only case of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) has fully recovered and is being released from a Chinese hospital on Friday, the South Korean health ministry said.

              The 44-year-old man, whose father is another MERS patient, had defied recommendations from health authorities in South Korea to remain in voluntary quarantine, flying to Hong Kong in late May before taking a bus to mainland China.

              He later tested positive for the MERS virus and had been hospitalised in the Chinese city of Huizhou, where his initially unstable condition gradually improved, the ministry said.

              There have been no other MERS case reported in China or Hong Kong.
