Korean MERS Sufferer Angers After Denying Concealing Illness

Korean MERS Sufferer Angers After Denying Concealing Illness

The South Korean patient currently being treated for MERS in Huizhou has denied concealing his illness after he took a plane from South Korea to Hong Kong despite previously being in contact with his father hospitalized by the disease and himself feeling unwell. Despite seeking treatment in Korea, by the time doctors reported it to the health department he had already set off for HK. There, airport medical personnel asked him about his fever, but never mentioned anything about MERS, and so it was waved. After complaining about Huizhou hospital food, netizens thought it fitting if he starved to death.
