South Korea Anticipates More Mers Cases

South Korea Anticipates More Mers Cases

South Korea is using body heat scanners in order to control the spread of the virus. They are just some of the tools this country is using against Mers. According to the WHO (World Health Organization), this Mers situation is serious and large. They also expect more cases of the infected people. In addition, it is still early to declare outbreak, because there is no evidence that the virus is spreading in the community. 140 people have been infected since the last month and 14 are dead.
Mers is caused by the type of virus that includes SARS and the common cold. It is a new type of coronavirus. First Mers cases were noticed in the Middle East in 2012. The same year, in Saudi Arabia, the first death was recorded. Experts still don’t know how the virus is spread. Some say that it can be spread through droplets. Patients usually have cough, fever and breathing difficulties, but in some cases, they can develop kidney failure and pneumonia. 36% of the patients infected with Mers have died.
Keiji Fukuda, from the WHO, said that, the outbreak is severe and they will have to expect more cases. At the moment, there is no evidence that the Mers virus is spreading within the community. All of the existing cases have been linked to the health facilities. Some factors that can increase the spread of the virus are:
1.    Health staff that is unknown with the disease,
2.    Doctors who visit several health institutions and
3.    Overcrowded hospital wards and emergency rooms.
3.680 people were isolated and 2.900 schools were closed on Friday, in order to prevent the possible contact with infected.
