South Korean MERS Sufferer Flies to HK, Quarantined in Guangdong

A South Korean suffering from a confirmed case of Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) was quarantined in a hospital designated by Huizhou Health and Family Planning Department following a World Health Organization report which stated he had developed a fever. The patient first felt unwell on May 21st, and despite a 38.7 ℃ body temperature still chose to fly to Hong Kong on the 26th, from where he entered Huizhou, Guangdong. Those who had close contact with the patient have been isolated for observation. One netizen joked this counted as a biological terrorist attack.

    • Jahar

      I’m sure they feel the same way about you. I remember when I was in University, a Chinese student came back after Christmas with TB, and my friend’s classes were all canceled and they all had to get checked out. So should we have been saying this kind of things about Chinese people?

    • Gerhana

        • Vance

          Who do you like? Unlike many here, I’m not trying to start something. I am just curious. I know from past discussions with me and others that you are also not impressed with Filipinos or Japanese.

          • Super Bunny!

            you think you look for something here too?
            hahaha!
            in fact, yes, some guys really added my yahoo or msn or whatever, just chat when they are bored, coz no gf to have fun. i am not anybody’s time killer. should let them go fk themselves.
            i dislike anyone hide behide internet. also i do not expect online relationship, i need real thing only. real money, real treat, real calls and sex.
            and i do have a lover, he is quite handsome from usa, but he is looking for some rich woman to marry, oh, he is fking poor and such a miser.

          • Vance

            HaHa!! Somehow I don’t think Chinasmack is the best place to get dates. Great people and all but I am not going to get any better than the one I told you about before. I agree, nothing better that the real thing in person. Internet is only for searching. One must meet the people in person. Best of luck with yours. American guys have a lot ot offer a woman. If he doesn’t have money, he must have a lot of something else! Good to see you are not judging only on materialistic values!

          • Super Bunny!

            i do. in fact.
            i plan to settle down asap.
            my parents not happy, coz then i have to leave. so, they feel i wont take care of them any more. though the truth is they take care of me.

        • Gerhana

          I remembered you said you wanted to write a book about love. Have you finished writing it?

          • Super Bunny!

            what?
            you must be blind.

    • mr.wiener

      I hope he lives… If his selfish and stupid actions lead to anyones death he should be charged with negligent homicide at the least.

  • Esdub W

    There is no ‘contact us’ selection on the Chinasmack website so i’ll post it here. After almost 6 years of reading Chinasmack religiously, this will be my last visit to the site. All the hard work, amazing translations, and true insight into China have became this. Thank you for all the good stories over the years

    • mr.wiener

      I too am saddened by what CS has become ,but the only constant in the world is change.Whether this is for good or bad remains to be seen…I intend to ride things out to the end.
      Thanks for your time and patronage.
      ……Mark.

      • You’re a good guy… I appreciate the fairness and openness with which you’ve treated the community here. As long as the lights are on, you have my support, for what that’s worth.

        • Bman

          I giggle when I see his name though. I’ve lived in China too long. I forget how much funnier “weiner” is than “sausage.”

          • Vance

            Actually, here we call a weiner a hot dogs.

          • mr.wiener

            Quite approriate considering the new story just in.

          • Vance

            Yea that’s right. Hot dog does have quite a different meaning there. You had better be careful. we wouldn’t want any unfortunate misunderstandings and have you wind up in a hot pot before they realized you are not actually a hot dog.

          • Bman

            well, we call a weiner and bread a hot dog. sometimes the word can mean hot dog too.

          • Bman

            lol, maybe i do too…i’ve been away from Canada for so long i forgot.

          • mr.wiener

            That’s why I chose it ,it is my trade..also that fool Anthony Wiener had just been caughted posting photos of himself online, so the choice was natural.

          • Bman

            yes, anthony weiner… a good debate about cause and effect to be had there.
            It’s your trade..?
            Hot dog salesman?
            Porn star?
            Veterinarian specializing in weiner dogs?
            Please tell me..

          • mr.wiener

            Sausage.

      • Teacher in China

        Yeah I’ll stick it out too although maybe not so frequently. I was here at the beginning, so I should witness the end too :)

  • mr.wiener

    “Voluntary quarentine” … so he goes on a business trip to China?!
    Sounds like the definition of selfish and stupid.

    • KEY WORD IS VOLUNTARY

      The key word being voluntary. Giving to charity is voluntary, it is not selfish or stupid to not give to charity. It would have been selfish and stupid if the quarantine was enforced and he broke out, but because it was VOLUNTARY its not.
      How about we place you in a voluntary quarantine? See how kong you stick it out for your concept of “the greater good”

      • mr.wiener

        If I had been in contact with someone with MERS and the powers that be had placed me in voluntary quarentine ,I would do just that. The concept of “voluntary quarentine” is that there is a risk ,but not great (justified in this case as it turns out). Rather than expending resources and taking away your civil rights,they are treating you like an adult and expecting you to act responsibly,
        This selfish and stupid man did not and has consequently put millions of people at risk… ROK:good hospital to population ratio and first world infastructure…. PRC: anyway you do the math doesn’t look good.
        Edit, please keep the name changes to a minimum.
