Korean MERS Cluster: Third Day With No New Cases




# 10,275


With an incubation period of up to 14 days, it would take up to four weeks without a new case before Korean officials could confidently declare their outbreak over, but the news on that front remains good for the third day in a row.


One new death was reported, that of an 81 y.o. female with co-morbidities who was exposed in late May at Samsung Seoul Hospital, and was confirmed infected on June 6th. 


She succumbed after more than 3 weeks of hospitalization, making her the 33rd fatality of this outbreak.

There remain more than a dozen cases still listed in `unstable’ condition, and as this report illustrates, deaths are often a trailing indicator with this disease.   Still, the case fatality rate in Korea seems destined to be significantly lower than has been reported previously in the Middle East. 


Exactly why that should be the case isn’t clear at this time, although given the quality and abundance of information flowing out of Korea on this outbreak, we should have some reasonable answers soon.
