  • Philippines - 3 possibly infected by Saudi suspected death of coronavirus MERS in Manila - October 7, 2015

    A suspected MERS-infected Saudi national who died last week in Manila appear to have transmitted the virus to three persons who had close contact with him.
    The three have been admitted to the hospital after showing symptoms of the virus, the Department of Health (DOH) announced.
    Health Secretary Janette Garin said the three had been screened for the virus but the results of the laboratory tests had yet to be released.
    “A total of 10 contacts have been traced. Fifteen are symptomatic but only five are being closely monitored,” Garin said in a text message to the Inquirer.
    Initially, only 12 people — mostly hotel and hospital staff — were confined at the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine in Muntinlupa City and San Lazaro Hospital in Manila for symptoms.
    The initial findings were negative but they will have to undergo a second round of screenings. They will be confined at the two hospitals until the end of the 14-day incubation period on Oct.13.
