MERS

Reported by DICOM Colleague in Wonju:

“Recently, the number of additional cases of MERS have been reduced in Korea; there was only one diagnosed patient in Wonju and she was discharged from the hospitals after making a full recovery.  WHO reaffirmed that sustained human-to-human transmission and community transmission of the MERS virus in Korea had not yet been observed on June 25th”.

In order to prevent MERS, one should wash hands frequently and use the hand sanitizers placed in public places and conference rooms.  Seek treatment immediately when you develop symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, etc.
