    S. Korea reports 3 more deaths from MERS, 3 new cases
    2015/06/18 09:00

    SEJONG, June 18 (Yonhap) -- South Korea reported three more deaths from Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) Thursday, bringing the death toll to 23.

    The latest deaths put the fatality rate of the disease in the country at nearly 14 percent, the highest since the country first confirmed its outbreak on May 20, according to the Ministry of Health and Welfare.

    The country also confirmed three new cases of the viral respiratory disease that brought the total number of people diagnosed with the disease to 165.

    The three new cases included two nurses at two local hospitals who helped treat MERS patients.

    So far, nearly all transmissions occurred at hospitals, a reason the government continues to claim there is no reason to fear the disease too much...

        Hong Kong CHP:
        The Centre for Health Protection (CHP) of the Department of Health is today (June 18) closely monitoring three additional cases of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) reported by Korea.

        According to the preliminary information of the health authority of Korea, they are:

        * A health-care worker who had contact with a confirmed case in Asan Cheongmoo Hospital from June 5 to 9;
        * A health-care worker who had contact with two other confirmed cases in Samsung Medical Center; and
        * A patient in Kyunghee University Hospital at Gangdong.

        To date, 164 MERS cases have been confirmed by Korea. In addition, another case was exported from Korea to Mainland China.

        "We again urge the public to pay special attention to safety during travel, taking due consideration of health risks of the places of visit," a spokesman for the CHP said.

        "In view of the latest situation in Korea, the public should avoid unnecessary travel to Korea, in particular those with chronic illnesses. Travellers in Korea and the Middle East should avoid unnecessary visits to health-care facilities. In addition, travellers to the Middle East should avoid going to farms, barns or markets with camels, and avoid contact with sick persons and animals, especially camels, birds or poultry," the spokesman advised.

        The CHP will maintain close communication with the World Health Organization and the health authority of Korea. Members of the public and the health-care sector should heighten vigilance and stay alert to the latest situation.

          No new patients from Samsung Medical Center

          June 19,2015
          ..
          “Patient No. 163, a 53-year-old female, works at Asan Chungmu Hospital, where Patient No. 119 was treated from June 5 to 9,” said Jeong Eun-hyeong, an official from the Korean Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). “Patient No. 164, a 35-year-old female, works within a ward at Samsung Medical Center where Patients No. 75 and 80 are being treated. She worked from June 10 to 12.”

          Patient No. 165 is a hospitalized patient at Kyung Hee University Hospital in Gangdong District, eastern Seoul, where Patient No. 76 was treated.

          But because Patient No. 76 stayed in the emergency room, the health authority is trying to determine how exactly the disease could have been transmitted.
          ...
          Patient No. 164 reportedly did not wear some of the protective gear, and the government is still looking into how she may have been infected. Patient No. 162, a 33-year-old x-ray engineer at Samsung Medical Center, also contracted MERS when he conducted x-rays for Patients No. 72, 80, 135 and 137 from June 11 to 12.
          ...
          Asan Chungmu Hospital in South Chungcheong, where Patient No. 163 is employed, completely shut down on Thursday over the possibility that it could become a third base for the disease’s spread.

          Initial test results suggested that 10 other nurses have been infected, though the results were still inconclusive. All inpatients, except suspected MERS patients, were discharged from the hospital and it is no longer accepting outpatients.

          The Shilla Hotel on Jeju Island also closed on Thursday after Patient No. 141, who was confirmed for MERS on Saturday, was found to have traveled to Jeju Island from June 5 to 8 with family and friends.
