In a further sign of slowing in South Korea’s MERS-CoV outbreak, the country reported just one new case and one additional death over the past few days, edging the total to 182 infections, 32 of them fatal, WHO reported.  The World Health Organization said that the recent drop in infections linked to a single healthcare-related transmission chain signals that South Korea’s control measures are having an impact. But it warned that more cases were likely to be detected, perhaps even some in the community, given the large number of contacts still under monitoring.
