    Deaths and patient numbers increase in battle against disease

    June 08,2015
    Patient No. 64, a 75-year-old man, died Friday and tested positive for MERS the following day, marking it the third death in which the disease was detected post-mortem. As of Sunday, the virus? fatality rate in the country was 7.8 percent.
    Korea?s first MERS patient, who caught the virus last month while on a 16-day business trip to the Middle East, had visited four domestic hospitals by the time he began exhibiting symptoms and was correctly diagnosed.

    Samsung Medical Center, where it was eventually confirmed that he had MERS, was the fourth, though he is not thought to have transmitted the virus to anyone there.

    So far, 17 of the country?s total MERS patients were found to have been infected in Samsung Medical Center?s emergency room. Two are medical staff. Patients No. 55 to 64 contracted the virus while staying in the emergency room with Patient No. 14, who was treated at the hospital from May 27 to 29.

    The total number of patients in the country infected with Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) has climbed to 64 and a fifth person has died, the Ministry of Health and Welfare announced Sunday, as 14 more people tested positive for the disease ov

    2015/06/07 18:21
    Out of 64 South Korean MERS patients, 17 have been infected with the virus at Samsung Medical Center, the highest rate of contraction at any hospital in Seoul.

    The hospital, affiliated with South Korea's top family-controlled conglomerate Samsung Group, said it has placed under isolation about 900 patients and medical staff who may have come in contact with an infected patient at its emergency room in late May.
    The health ministry said that at least seven MERS patients were now in critical condition, while only one of the 64 people who have been diagnosed with the viral disease has been released following a complete recovery.
    The number of people who have been ordered into quarantine or isolation at their own homes for possible infection has reached more than 2,300 as of Sunday morning, up from around 100 just a week ago.
    MERS is a viral respiratory illness that had a very high fatality rate of over 40 percent globally before the outbreak in South Korea, according to the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In South Korea, the death rate from the virus has reached 7.8 percent.
