          South Korea: 1,200 should stay home because of MERS-infected doctor

          By Jason Hanna and Kathy Novak, CNN

          Updated 2023 GMT (0323 HKT) June 4, 2015


          (CNN)South Korea's capital began asking more than 1,200 people Thursday to self-quarantine -- and is considering measures to force their isolation -- because they unknowingly attended a symposium with a doctor who was infected with MERS, the mayor of Seoul said.

          The announcement by Seoul Mayor Park Won-soon came amid a MERS outbreak in South Korea, where the respiratory virus has killed three people since May and more than 900 schools have been shut to prevent the virus's spread.

          A doctor -- the 35th and latest person confirmed to have Middle East Respiratory Syndrome in South Korea -- attended the symposium in Seoul in late May, after he began to have symptoms, Park said.

          The doctor, who had treated a MERS patient earlier in the month, was quarantined on May 30 and tested positive for MERS on June 1, Park said.
