        3 more MERS patients die

        By Kim Rahn
        The three were aged 49, 58 and 65, and marks the first time someone in their 40s has died from the disease in Korea.

        According to the ministry, the 49-year-old patient suffered from hepatocirrhosis and diabetes before becoming infected with MERS.

        However, the other two victims were in relatively good health before contracting the virus.
        Of the four newly confirmed cases, three patients contracted the disease from Samsung Medical Center (SMC) in Seoul...

        The three new patients had carried on with their everyday lives until the infection was confirmed as they were not on the government's monitoring list.

        One of them is a civil servant at a community center in Daegu and had accompanied his mother to the emergency room with his sister.

        The sister, who lives in Daejeon, was also diagnosed with the disease on June 10 and has since been hospitalized in an isolation ward. Despite his sister's confirmation, he was excluded from the government's list and kept working until he displayed signs of a fever on June 13.
        Another of the newly-confirmed cases visited the same emergency room with his wife who received treatment there. Although the wife was included in the monitoring list, he was not, and he developed MERS symptoms on June 6.

        The government only became aware of his case after he voluntarily went to Seoul St. Mary's Hospital on Monday, more than a week after first showing symptoms, where he tested positive.
        In addition, there have been several cases where people have shown MERS symptoms after the incubation period of 14 day. Regardless, the ministry said it is not considering extending the monitoring period of suspected patients from the current 14 days.

        An undisclosed number of foreigners are being isolated after showing symptoms of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), according to the Ministry of Health and Welfare, Tuesday. ...

          MERS patient rode Seoul subways

          Infected Samsung Medical Center aide was at large for 7 days

          June 17,2015

          ?Patient No. 137 used the subway between Seoul National University Station and Ilwon Station, transferring at Seoul National University of Education Station, for at least seven days [after exhibiting symptoms] including from June 5 to 8 when his condition worsened,? said Kim Chang-bo, the city government?s health authority. ?We conducted sterilization of the mall and hair salon and isolated those who came in close contact with the patient at home.?

          The Seoul Metropolitan Government, which is cooperating with the central government for MERS prevention, also said on Tuesday that it will sterilize the subway stations and give advice to anyone who suspects they have contracted the disease through the Dasan Call Center at 120.
          Patient No. 137 is one of 2,944 non-salaried workers of Samsung Medical Center, where Patient No. 14 infected 72 people thus far. He is an emergency ward transfer agent whose job is to transfer patients from the emergency ward to a regular hospital room. Many of the people infected in Samsung Medical Center were infected in the emergency ward.
          The Ministry of Health and Welfare on Tuesday announced four more confirmed cases of MERS, raising the total to 154. Three of them are third-generation patients and the quarantine authority admitted they were off the radar until they were confirmed for MERS.

          ?Patients No. 151, 152 and 154 were not under the government?s isolation measures, and only Patient No. 153, [a fourth-generation patient who caught the disease from Patient No. 118 on June 5], was tracked down,? said Kwon Jun-uk, an official of the Health Ministry.

          Disquiet over Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) deepened in Seoul Tuesday after it was revealed that an ill medical aide from Seoul’s Samsung Medical Center travelled widely around the city before he was quarantined Friday. The central gov
