    It appears that 3 cases are nosocomial infections acquired at St. Mary's Hospital.

    1 case is a contact to case #1181 (probably through visiting a hospitalized family member).

    1 case is a contact to case #1173

    4 cases are probable contacts to case #1173 but the language is not totally clear.

    It appears all of these 9 cases are nosocomial infections.

          South Korea Reports Nine New Cases in MERS Virus Outbreak

          By CHOE SANG-HUN
          JUNE 5, 2015

          SEOUL, South Korea — Nine new cases of Middle East respiratory syndrome were discovered in South Korea on Saturday, five of them stemming from transmissions at one of the country’s largest and best hospitals, as officials struggled to contain the virus that has so far infected 50 people, killing four.

          The announcement of five new cases at Samsung Medical Center in southern Seoul meant that a substantial new source of infection had been identified in the capital, a city of 10 million. A large, modern hospital owned by the Samsung conglomerate, the center is staffed by some of South Korea’s best-trained medical personnel.

          The five infected people had all been treated in the hospital’s emergency room, where a patient with the disease, known as MERS, was treated on May 27, the Health Ministry said in a statement on Saturday. The patient had earlier infected two other people in the emergency room, a doctor and a visitor.

            9 more MERS infections reported in S.Korea, capital Seoul in danger


            Nine more infections with the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) were reported Saturday in South Korea, sending the total number to 50 since the first case was identified on May 20, the health ministry said.

            The capital Seoul is feared to become the second hotbed of the MERS spread as seven cases occurred at a Seoul hospital, of which a doctor allegedly had contact with thousands of people without any hindrance.



            Five new cases were those who stayed at the emergency room of Samsung Medical Center in Seoul on May 27 or May 28 together with the 14th infectee.

            It raised fears for the launch of the MERS spread in Seoul with a population of more than 10 million through the hospital.

            The total number of people infected at the hospital gained to seven, including the hospital's doctor who allegedly had contact with thousands of unspecified individuals.

            The Seoul metropolitan government said Thursday that the 38- year-old doctor joined an event attended by 1,565 people, and strode down the street in Seoul under suspected conditions of MERS infection.

            The 14th infectee came to Seoul on May 27 to be hospitalized at the Samsung Medical Center's emergency room, in which the seven infectees had contact with the 35-year-old man.

            The man originally had been hospitalized at the Pyeongtaek St. Mary's Hospital along with the patient zero. It was feared that the 14th infectee moved the corona virus from the hospital in Pyeongtaek to the one in Seoul.

            The 14th infectee traveled to Seoul by bus, raising possibility that tertiary infections might have occurred outside hospitals. No such case has been reported yet.

            The health authorities have been tracing around 600 people who could have contacted the 14th patient, including medical staffs and patients as well as visitors of the Samsung Medical Center.
