Korean MERS Cluster Rises To 122 Cases










# 10,184


The Korean CDC has updated their numbers, and adds 14 new MERS cases, bringing the total so far to 122.  Eight of the cases are linked to Samsung Hospital, while 1 case is linked to Sacred Heart Hospital.

Of particular note, 5 cases are listed as having their epidemiological investigation still in progress.
 
There will be considerable interest in seeing whether further investigation shows all five cases follow the same pattern of having been acquired through hospital exposure as have the others.
