South Korea Confirms Five New MERS Virus Cases

South Korea has confirmed five more cases of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), bringing to 30 the number of infected people since the outbreak began in the country two weeks ago. Seoul reported its first two deaths from MERS on Tuesday, fuelling fear in the country which has reported the most cases outside the Middle East, where the disease first appeared. Aljazeera reports:


The country has quarantined or isolated about 1,300 people for possible MERS infection. More than 200 schools, most in the province of Gyeonggi around the capital, and where the first death occurred on Monday, were shut for the week, the education ministry said.

Of the five new cases reported on Wednesday, four had been in the same hospital as the first patient, a 68-year-old man who had just returned from a trip to four countries in the Middle East. The other, a 60-year-old man, caught it from another infected person.

Media said health authorities were conducting tests on an elderly patient who died on Sunday after sharing the same hospital ward with one of the two MERS-infected people who had died. Officials said it was likely she died of an existing illness. The new cases would bring the total number globally to 1,166, based on World Health Organization (WHO) data, with at least 436 related deaths.

Governor of Cross River State, Senator Ben Ayade, has scrapped the weekly Executive Council meetings where the governor and his deputy meets with commissioners, special advisers and permanent secretaries to review the activities of government in the state.


The governor, who made the decision to scrap the State EXCO meeting during a closed door parley with permanent secretaries in the state public and civil service Tuesday, directed that a monthly interactive session in the executive council chambers will take the place of the weekly meeting.
Mr. Ayade in the meeting with the permanent secretaries, also disbanded the anti-deforestation taskforce put in place by his predecessor, Senator Liyel Imoke, to checkmate the illegal logging of large forest reserves in the state for which the United Nations has granted 600 million dollars for the carbon credit accruing from the reserves.

The governor, who did not proffer an alternative solution to the illegal felling of trees in the state simply said, “Government has approved the disbandment of the state Task Force on Illegal Logging in the state while all offenders are to be fully prosecuted without delay”.
