5th person dies of MERS in South Korea

South Korean Officials say another person has died of the MERS virus, putting the total number of deaths at five. Sixty-four people have been infected by the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome since last month. With hundreds of schools having closed, and hundreds of people quarantined. While the virus has no vaccine, health experts say it spreads through close contact with infected people and not through the air. The U.N. health agency has reported that there’s no evidence yet in South Korea of “sustained transmission in the community.”
