    (2nd LD) S. Korea reports 8 new MERS cases, bringing total to 162

    2015/06/17 10:13
    ...
    Four of the eight new cases were again linked to the emergency room of Seoul's Samsung Medical Hospital, which has voluntarily shut down most of its operations after it was blamed for nearly half of all transmissions.
    ...
    Currently, 124 MERS patients remained in hospital care while 18 of them were in unstable conditions, according to the ministry.

    Some 6,500 others were in isolation as of Wednesday for possible infection after coming in close contact with MERS patients. The number jumped from 5,586 on the previous day.
    ...
    Out of 162 people diagnosed with the disease here, 83 percent, or 134, are family members or friends of MERS patients, according to the health ministry.

    So far, nearly all infections occurred at hospitals with the only known exception involving an ambulance driver and a rescue worker who helped transport MERS patients.

      MERS infections in S.Korea rise to 162 with 8 new cases

      English.news.cn 2015-06-17 09:07:16
      ...
      Among the new cases were five people contracting the virus at the Samsung Medical Center in Seoul, where the patient 14, called super spreader, has infected nearly 80 people, according to the Ministry of Health and Welfare.

      One Samsung hospital doctor, 33, was included in the list of new infectees. The doctor is now under investigation as the health authorities hasn't figured out where and from whom the man was infected.

      If the doctor treated patients and had contact with many others, he could become another source of contagion.

      The remaining three cases caught the virus each at the Hallym University Medical Center in Hwaseong, Gyeonggi Province, the Gangdong Kyunghee University Medical Center in Seoul and a small clinic in Pyeongtaek, about 60 km south of Seoul.

      The new case from the Kyunghee hospital was a 31-year-old doctor who treated patients at the emergency room on June 5 when the patient 76 visited the hospital. Doctor infectees totaled five as of Wednesday.

        (3rd LD) S. Korea reports additional death from MERS, 8 new cases

        2015/06/17 11:20

        SEJONG, June 17 (Yonhap) -- South Korea reported an additional death from Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) on Wednesday, with eight new cases that brought the total number of people diagnosed with the disease here to 162.

        The latest fatality put the death toll at 20, according to the Ministry of Health and Welfare.

        The ministry said nearly 90 percent of those who died from MERS had existing health conditions, which were apparently worsened by the infection.

        The latest person to die from the disease also had an existing respiratory problem, as well as high blood pressure, prior to infection, a ministry official said.

            Nation aims to stem MERS by end-June
            ...
            Published : 2015-06-17 20:21
            Updated : 2015-06-17 20:34

            South Korea’s health authorities said Wednesday they plan to rein in the recent outbreak of Middle East respiratory syndrome ― which has claimed 20 lives to date ― by late June, taking a step back from its initial stance that last weekend would be the turning point in battling the infectious disease.

            Despite the rising number of infections in the country ― which ran up to 162 Wednesday ― the World Health Organization said the outbreak does not meet the conditions for a “public health emergency of international concern.” ...

            Korean authorities confirmed earlier in the day another MERS-related fatality, a 54-year-old woman, along with eight more infections.
            ...
            ”A sporadic outbreak of MERS is possible of course, but we are monitoring the patients ― especially patient No.137 ― to ensure that no more large-scale infections happen,” Kwon added....
            ...
            In light of the rampant spread of MERS at one of country’s top hospitals, the ministry announced it will collect information related to everyone who visited Samsung Medical Center between June 2 and June 10, during which exposure to the virus could have occurred.

            The MERS response team also urged people who visited the MERS-affected hospitals to alert authorities to the fact. The government is currently running a 109 MERS hotline in 19 languages, including English, Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, French and Vietnamese.
            ...
            Of the newly affected, two were members of medical staff at hospitals in Seoul ― one at Kyung Hee University Hospital at Gangdong and the other from Samsung Medical Center, the source of 80 confirmed cases.
            ...
            Based on findings from the Saudi Arabian situation, the MERS response team in Korea initially said infection could only occur when a person has been in a confined area within 2 meters of a MERS patient. But several cases have demonstrated that the infection can occur when a MERS patient is not in the vicinity.

              I still do not see any government confirmation of a new death. In fact the MoH websites are still showing no new deaths yesterday.

                  Concerns surround 2-week MERS latency period

                  June 18,2015

                  As the outbreak of Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) continues unabated with another death confirmed Wednesday, a new worrying development has arisen: The two-week latency period reported in the Middle East appears to be longer in Korea, and people exposed to the disease are showing symptoms more than two weeks later.
                  ...
                  The Ministry of Health and Welfare on Wednesday announced eight additional MERS cases, Patients No. 155 to 162, with six of them having contracted the disease at Samsung Medical Center in Seoul, as well as another fatality.

                  Patient No. 42, a 54-year-old woman, who contracted the disease at Pyeongtaek St. Mary’s Hospital, where Patient No. 1 infected more than 30 people, died on Wednesday, bringing total deaths to 20.

                  According to the health authority, the patient already suffered from bronchiectasis and high blood pressure. Her death puts the fatality rate at 12.3 percent.

                  Concerns over the recommended latency period arose in the cases of Patients No. 158 and 161, who did not exhibit symptoms until after two weeks. They were confirmed to have MERS on Tuesday.
                  ...
                  Concerns over the disease’s spread have remained constant since the outbreak’s start but were renewed Monday when it was reported that Patient No. 152, a 66-year-old man who tested positive for MERS on Monday, had traveled to his villa in South Chungcheong several times even after exhibiting symptoms.
                  ...
                  Patient No. 137 was also found to have used Seoul subway line Nos. 2 and 3 for about eight days after showing symptoms, increasing the likelihood that the virus could expand to local communities.
                  ...

                    I have added a note to the case list about the media reported death of case #42. Maybe she will be officially reported in tonight's MoH report.
