2 MERS cases reported

May 28, 2015

The Department of Health is monitoring two newly reported Middle East Respiratory Syndrome cases in Korea.


The patients involved are a 71-year-old man and a 28-year-old woman. Both have had contact with a MERS patient.


The country has so far reported seven MERS cases.


As Ramadan will begin in mid-June, the department reminds pilgrims preparing to visit Saudi Arabia for Umrah to stay vigilant against the disease.


The department also advises travel agents organising tours to the Middle East not to arrange camel rides and activities involving the animals which may increase the risk of infection.
