Dear participants in FPSAC 2015,
We, organizers, have been closely watching the situation for MERS outbreak in Korea since the onset.
One can check FAQ and press releases about MERS in English at the official government sites:
We quote two paragraphs from the press release of WHO on the issue, which is deposited at the above site:
Attached are the aforementioned WHO press release and the MERS statistics by Korean government:
From the facts that almost all patients are related to hospital visits, that the occurrences of new patients is going down, that the number of people in quarantine are decreasing, and that the government authorities are taking appropriate measures, we can say that MERS situation is subsiding and under control.
So conference participants should not worry too much but should pay attention to personal preventive hygiene. We will prepare hand sanitizers and masks for personal hygiene during the conference.
If you have any questions, please let us know.
We look forward to seeing you at FPSAC 2015.
The organizing committee
