      S. Korea reports 14 new cases of MERS, bringing total to 122

      2015/06/11 08:39

      SEJONG, June 11 (Yonhap) -- South Korea on Thursday confirmed 14 new cases of the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), bringing to 122 the total number of people diagnosed with the potentially deadly disease.

      Out of the 14 new patients, eight have been infected while visiting Samsung Medical Center in Seoul, according to the Ministry of Health and Welfare.

      The hospital, one of the largest in the capital, has been a major source of infection after it had unknowingly treated a MERS patient prior to the person's diagnosis.
      ...
      No additional fatality was reported overnight, the ministry said.

              Police, pregnant woman among 14 new MERS cases

              A total of eight were infected at Samsung Medical Center in southern Seoul -- now the nation’s most severely hit hospital with 47 patients -- while another caught the virus in Hallym University Dongtan Sacred Heart Hospital, the Health Ministry’s MERS special response team said.

              Authorities, however, have yet to determine where five of the patients contracted the virus, raising questions about their ability to keep track and ultimately contain the outbreak.

              Of particular concern was a male policeman who was actually released after he tested negative for MERS on June 3. He was readmitted on June 5 after his conditions worsened, and a re-test on Tuesday finally confirmed that he had the disease.

              His case raises the possibility of the MERS being exposed to the general public depending on when he caught the virus....

                    1st outpatient contracts MERS
                    ...
                    By Kim Rahn

                    An outpatient at Samsung Medical Center in Seoul has been diagnosed with Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), the first infection outside the hospital's emergency room where a confirmed patient spread the disease to 54 others, health authorities said Thursday.

                    The new case suggests that the virus could be transmitted via air. Virus experts have said infection by the MERS virus is usually through direct contact with patients or exposure to their coughing.
                    ...
                    The ministry said a 77-year-old woman who received treatment at the hospital's orthopedics department as an outpatient on May 27 was infected with MERS.

                    So far, all the infections from the hospital had been limited to people who visited the emergency room where the nation's 14th patient stayed for three days. The ministry thus said an outbreak in areas of the hospital other than the emergency room was unlikely.

                    Both the orthopedics department and the emergency room are on the first floor, but the two are not close. Between them is the radiology department.

                    "The patient had an X-ray, and after that visited a restroom in the emergency room section. Through surveillance camera recordings within the hospital, we are examining if she was exposed to the 14th patient there," a hospital official said.

                    The ministry ruled out the possibility of airborne infection.

                    Her case was found as the government has been checking all pneumonia patients nationwide since Wednesday, and she was at a clinic in Changwon, South Gyeongsang Province, with pneumonia symptoms. The ministry is continuing the checks.

                      MERS death toll rises to 10

                      Of particular concern was the case of a 35-year-old policeman who was initially released after he tested negative for MERS on June 3. He was readmitted on June 5 after his conditions worsened, and a retest Tuesday finally confirmed that he had the disease.
                      ...
                      According to the health authorities and Gyeonggi Provincial Police Agency, he roamed around Seoul, Gyeonggi Province and South Chungcheong Province since May 31, when he first started showing symptoms. Just a day before he was readmitted, he used public transportation to travel from Seoul to Pyeongtaek, Gyeonggi Province.
                      ...
                      Another patient whose infection route was unconfirmed was a 77-year-old outpatient of Samsung Medical Center. All other patients at the hospital who had caught the virus did so while staying in an emergency room, which sparked concern of an unprecedented airborne infection of MERS.

                      But health authorities and experts said there was “no possibility” of the virus being transmitted via air, saying a lot more people would have been infected if that were the case.

                      “About 8,000 outpatients visit the Samsung Medical Center every day. If MERS was transmittable by air, at least 400 would have been infected,” said professor Eom Joong-sik, a bacteriologist with the government’s MERS special response team.

                      “If airborne infection was possible, families would be the most likely victims. But data implies that the likelihood of family infection ranges from five to 10 percent,” he said.
                      ...
                      In a briefing to the National Assembly, Yang said there is a possibility three patients ― including one who has died ― may have sparked a large-scale outbreak like one at Samsung Medical Center. After being infected at the Samsung medical Center, they visited several hospitals in Seoul, Daejeon and Changwon in South Gyeongsang Province.

Even viruses get spread, also requires a certain amount will be raised after infection. Depending on the disease and has the ability to spread the number of virus is also different.

                          MERS forces total sealing off of two hospitals

                          June 12,2015
                          ...
                          Mediheal Medical Center in Seoul and Changwon SK Hospital in Changwon, South Gyeongsang, have been sealed off from the world. Patients and staff can’t leave and no one can enter or visit the facilities.
                          ...
                          The Health Ministry also announced one more fatality Thursday, Patient No. 83, a 75-year-old male who suffered from lung cancer. He contracted the disease from Patient No. 16 at Konyang University Hospital in Daejeon. The death toll rose to 10.
                          ...
                          One of the 14 new patients announced by the ministry Thursday was considered a possible fourth-generation patient, a worrying development. But the likelihood receded as the day progressed.

                          That woman, who became Patient No. 115, was a 77-year-old outpatient visiting Samsung Medical Center’s orthopedics department on May 27...
                          ...
                          “We are conducting a detailed examination to figure out how Patient No. 115 caught the disease,” said an official of the Ministry of Health and Welfare on Thursday. “Some are suggesting a possible airborne infection, but so far it’s been reported that airborne transmissions aren’t likely.”

                          The government did not specify how five of the 14 new patients contracted the disease, increasing fears of fourth-generation infections. It later explained their test results came early on Thursday and epidemiological studies hadn’t been completed yet.

                          Among the five patients is a 35-year-old policeman, Patient No. 119. He is known to have met a friend, who traveled to Saudi Arabia, on May 26 and 28 and began to exhibit symptoms from May 31...

                          But the friend tested negative for MERS.
                          ...
                          Given that he had contact with a number of other people after he was told he didn’t have MERS, the disease might have been transmitted to others. If it was, that could extend the Korean outbreak another two weeks.
