Koreans declared negative for MERS-CoV

The three Koreans, who reportedly came to ManilaDoctorsHospital yesterday and were immediately sent to the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM) to be tested for MERS-CoV, were found negative for the disease.

The findings were officially released by the RITM this afternoon.

This announcement reiterates MDH’s earlier announcement that the Hospital is MERS-Cov free.

MDH reassures its clients that it is prepared and remains fully alert and vigilant in terms of handling such cases.
