Guangzhou No.8 People's Hospital ICU chief physician Deng Ciron director, said the past few days the experts most fear is that the disease will Kim deteriorating, eventually intubation, ventilator, so that not only the treatment of heavy tasks among health care workers, patients' own risk will be further increased. Fortunately, through the pre-treatment program designed to eventually put a gold condition under control.

    Treatment process that requires time to time face to face contact with the patient, in Korea, many medical personnel therefore infected MERS, this, Deng Xi admits: "Because there is no contact with such patients before the beginning of health care is more or less afraid of But the experience of the 'SARS' baptism, followed by learning the Ebola also organized training, medical treatment or have a degree of certainty.

    Deng Xi: According to foreign rescue experience, patients generally between two weeks before the condition will worsen, a condition gold also experienced this process, the treatment process, but also to constantly adjust the program. In the meantime, some of the mood swings of gold is relatively large, and I have put off smile, I say thank you, but sometimes said poor appetite, sleep, headache, do not want to eat. In order for him with the treatment, we also want some way, such as the provincial Planning Commission has to communicate with the health staff of the Korean consulate, consulate people to visit him four times, we respect his eating habits, he was prepared to Korean food, etc. . Fortunately, now two weeks, all the indicators are improving. 4 consecutive days without fever, cough between, no sputum, shortness of breath under no oxygen, the chest radiograph showed bilateral pulmonary still has inflammation, but oozing over the previous reduction. But now it can not be said to have one hundred percent secure.

    Q: When will the lifting of the isolation of Kim?

    Bell Hero: To be judged according to test results. Good indicators for 5 consecutive days of blood, throat swab test, showing a negative, but the sputum testing, there are still positive. So still further observation. Still wary of infection and change.

    Q: The next prevention should pay attention to what issues?

    Bell Hero: Middle East respiratory syndrome is not only South Korea has the disease, a greater risk of imported cases from other parts of the Middle East and to the Middle East pilgrimage tourism personnel. When the latest assessment: Enter risk still exists. Then, for unexplained pneumonia and severe pneumonia, especially in the Middle East to monitor people coming back will strengthen.

    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."

    The man, surnamed Kim, told South Korean television station KBS that officials had only asked him if he had any flu symptoms and if he had been to hospital recently. He said he was not asked if he had Mers.

    Kim said a clinic near his home in Gyeonggi-do asked him to go for a medical examination after his father was confirmed to have contracted Mers on May 21. But he said he did not go because he was not told of the seriousness of the virus.

    Kim's condition had worsened yesterday, said Dr Ling Yun, chief of the Huizhou Municipal Centre Hospital's intensive care unit.

    Subject: WHO China office media statement: FIRST CONFIRMED MERS-CoV CASE IN CHINA
    Date: May 29, 2015 5:48 AM

    Dear Journalists,

    Please find below, the media statement issued by WHO China office.


    FIRST CONFIRMED MERS-CoV CASE IN CHINA
    Beijing, 29 MAY 2015 ? China?s National Health and Family Planning Commission has notified the World Health Organization of a laboratory-confirmed case of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) in China. This is the first case of MERS-CoV in China.

    The confirmed case is a Republic of Korea national in his mid-40s, who travelled to Guangdong province, China via Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR) on Tuesday May 26. The patient is a close contact of a confirmed MERS-CoV case in the Republic of Korea.

    The patient is in isolation in a hospital in Huizhou, Guangdong province. We understand he is currently in a stable condition, and is being well cared for.

    Chinese health authorities acted swiftly in response to the initial notification from the Republic of Korea that the close contact of a confirmed-MERS case had travelled to China earlier this week. For example:
    • local health authorities are tracing all known close contacts of the patient;
    • the Guangdong Health and Family Planning Commission dispatched an expert team to Huizhou to conduct epidemiological investigation and sampling;
    • Hong Kong SAR health authorities are tracing close contacts of the patient during his transit through Hong Kong SAR.
    Based on the evidence about MERS-CoV gathered to date, the virus does not seem to pass easily from person to person unless there is close contact. There is no evidence of sustained human-to-human transmission.

    WHO is communicating closely with the Chinese health authorities to support their response to the case.
