(2nd LD) South Korea reports first two MERS-related deaths
2015-06-02 07:46
Normal FontLarge Font
(ATTN: CHANGES slug, dateline; UPDATES with additional information in paras 8-16)
South Korea reported the country's first two deaths from Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) on Tuesday, saying a suspected patient was confirmed to have the virus after death and another confirmed patient died.

The health ministry also reported six new cases of the viral disease, bringing the total to 25. The new cases included the country's first tertiary infections as two people were found to have contracted the virus from a secondarily infected patient.

All the other cases stemmed from South Korea's first MERS patient, who came back from a trip to the Middle East.

One of the two deaths involved a 58-year-old female patient who came in close contact with the first patient. She had been listed as a suspected case until she died on Monday. Tests later showed that she was infected with the virus, officials said.

She was first admitted to a hospital on May 11 for difficulty breathing from asthma. She is believed to have had contact with the first patient at the hospital between May 15 and 17, and her condition deteriorated, officials said.

The second death was a 71-year-old man who has been listed as the sixth MERS patient. He was first admitted to the hospital on May 15 and came in close contact with the first patient between May 15-17 before he was confirmed to have the virus on May 28.

The identities of the patients were all withheld for privacy reasons.

Health and Welfare Ministry officials expressed concerns over the possibility of a groundless fear spreading faster than the disease.

They noted the two patients had serious medical conditions even before they caught the virus though MERS may have worsened their conditions.

However, the confirmed tertiary transmission of the disease may warrant serious concerns as it now makes all 25 people who have been diagnosed with the disease a carrier.

Previously, the government had only isolated some 70 people who had come in close contact with the first patient, maintaining that no tertiary transmission of the disease had ever been reported throughout the world.

The government changed its stance following a public demand for aggressive and precautionary measures.

As of Monday morning, 682 people who have ever come in close contact with any of the patients were in isolation at state-designated facilities or their homes.

The number is set to grow as it will include those who have ever come in contact with the six new patients diagnosed.

MERS is a viral respiratory illness that is new to humans, according to the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. There had been only 1,142 reported cases in 23 countries since the first case was confirmed in Saudi Arabia in 2012.

Most people infected with MERS develop severe acute respiratory illness, including a fever, a cough and shortness of breath. There currently is no vaccine or treatment for the disease that has a very high fatality rate of over 40 percent.

Two MERS patients died
June 02,2015

Two deaths from a fatal respiratory disease from Middle East were first reported on Tuesday, nearly two weeks after the Patient No. 1, who contracted the disease from Middle East on his 16-day business trip, tested positive on May 20.

Central MERS countermeasure headquarters, tasked with preventing spread of the Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS), announced on Tuesday morning that 58-year-old woman who died at a hospital in Gyeonggi on Monday tested positive for MERS and Patient No. 6, a 71-year-old man who has been in a critical condition, also died on Monday.

Also, infection through secondary patient has been also found for the first time in Korea.

Six more patients were added on the list on Tuesday, and the health authority said two of them contracted the disease from Patient No. 16. The number of MERS cases in Korea reached 25, third largest in the world after Saudi Arabia (1,007) and United Arab Emirates (76).

The 58-year-old woman who died on Monday, or Patient No. 25, have been treated for difficulty in breathing due to her asthma since May 11 and had contact with the first patient from May 15 to May 17. The countermeasure headquarters added that the patient had underlying conditions such as asthma, high blood pressure and Cushing's syndrome, a hyperadrenocorticism due to prolonged exposure to steroid, which may have taken a toll after she caught MERS.

The government is facing a criticism for the death since it could not find her until Monday, the day she died, which means there could have been more people who had contact with her.

Patient No. 6, who had contact with the first patient while he stayed at the same ward, tested positive for MERS on Thursday. The countermeasure headquarters also said the 71-year-old man had chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and had one of his kidney removed due to cancer in 2011.

"Underlying condition of [Patient No. 6] had to do with his weak immunity and respiratory disease," said his doctor, "and it is expected to have negatively affected him after he contracted MERS."

The problem is the two new tertiary infected people, who are Patients Nos. 23 and 24.

Patient No. 1 returned to Korea on May 4 and began to show symptoms on May 11, and he subsequently visited four different hospitals until he was correctly diagnosed with MERS.

The two tertiary infected patients stayed in the same hospital room with Patient No. 16 at the fourth hospital visited by the first patient. Patient No. 16 contracted diseased from the first patient at the second hospital, where most of secondary infection occurred.

Tertiary infection is considered a huge threat given that it usually means the disease was transmitted due to lax preventive measures and it suggests possible spread among people outside of quarantine coverage. The headquarters, however, said the two tertiary infections were made within medical facility, playing down possibility of spread among public.

The four other new patients were found to have caught the disease from the first patient at the second hospital.

WHO supports member states in its response to the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) within the Western Pacific Region

News release


MANILA, 3 JUNE 2015 - Since the emergence of the first case of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) case in the Republic of Korea, the World Health Organization Western Pacific Region has been on high alert, working closely with national authorities to support response efforts and prevent further spread of the virus.

To date, authorities in the Republic of Korea have confirmed 30 MERS-CoV cases with WHO, including the first (index) case in a person with a history of travel in the Middle East. All cases are linked to one chain of transmission including, 26 secondary and three tertiary cases.

On 2 June 2015, the Korean Centres for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed two deaths due to MERS-CoV. The first fatality was a 57-year-old woman, who had been treated as a suspected case and died of acute respiratory failure on 1 June 2015. Later test results came back positive for MERS-CoV. The second fatality was a 71-year-old man who was confirmed positive seven days ago and died on 1 June 2015.

Out of these secondary cases, one travelled to China on 26 May, before his diagnosis was confirmed on 29 May. He is a 44-year-old male, and is now undergoing treatment in isolation.

To strengthen response efforts, the WHO Western Pacific Regional Office established an Event Management Team, to coordinate and provide support in various areas, such as information and epidemiology, technical expertise and risk communications.

Based on evidence gathered, the MERS-CoV virus does not seem to pass easily from person-to-person unless there is close contact. There is no evidence of sustained human-to-human transmission. However, monitoring of the situation and contacts and information- gathering continues to better assess the risks associated with this event. Sequencing of the viruses obtained from patients in the Republic of Korea and China is also ongoing.

Consistent application of adequate infection protection control measures has been used to end transmission in previous clusters. WHO does not advise special screening at points of entry, nor are travel or trade restrictions recommended. Member states should continue with surveillance measures for acute respiratory infections and carefully review any unusual patterns.
