The Korean HHS has announced 14 new MERS cases diagnosed over the past 24 hours, with the bulk of them (n=10) occurring at hospital `D' or Samsung Medical Center located in Southern Seoul.
We are also informed of the 5th fatality in this outbreak.
To date this makes 17 nosocomial infections reported from hospital `D', involving both patients and medical staff, and all stemming from contact with patient #14.
Three other cases are reported from Hospital `B' (St Mary's in Pyeongtaek) where the first outbreak occurred, and are all nosocomial infections, almost certainly tertiary in nature.
The final case announced tonight was in Hospital `F', which are linked to patient #16.
Once again we are getting very few specifics on these cases beyond their location, which makes it increasingly difficult to track them. Hopefully the next WHO update will shed additional light on the chains of transmission.
The translation of tonight's announcement follows, hopefully we'll get more details in the English language reportage over night. Finally a hat tip for my co-conspirator Sharon Sanders of FluTrackers.
