South Korea Reports First MERS Deaths

The first two MERS related deaths have been reported by South Korea, according to Reuters. Officials are considering prohibiting overseas travel in order to contain the outbreak, particularly following the spread of the disease to China after a South Korean man decided against his quarantine to travel to China. The World Health Organization denies that any travel or trade restrictions are necessary because of the limited human-to-human spread of the disease, in spite of the recent deaths.
