The United Arab Emirates has issued a travel warning on South Korea over an MERS outbreak.

The virus has killed four people, infected 42 and prompted health officials to quarantine more than 1,800 since the first case was confirmed more than two weeks ago.

The UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs asked its citizens to avoid traveling to the country on its website Thursday.

Earlier this week Taiwan has raised the travel alert to the second level for Seoul, Incheon and the Gyeonggi Province.

Thailand has also warned its nationals to avoid Daejeon where an MERS outbreak was reported.
A total of 1,317 schools and kindergartens, including 15 universities, canceled classes to prevent possible infection as of Friday afternoon nationwide.
