    Man suspected of MERS confirmed negative


    A Korean man who showed suspected symptoms of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) after his trip to the United Arab Emirates has been confirmed negative.

    The result came after the 38-year-old man was taken to a hospital in the city of Dongducheon, north of Seoul, after he returned from Dubai on Thursday. He had showed high fever and other possible symptoms when he was taken to the hospital.

    The case, if confirmed otherwise, would have meant a fresh MERS outbreak case after a 46-day gap. The previous outbreak had claimed 36 lives.
