South Korea starts plasma treatment trial for Mers

By lunaradmin - Jun 16, 2015      

Antibodies from the blood of survivors of Mers will be used as treatment. The treatment has been used to treat patients with Ebola from others that have fought off the same infection. Over 150 people in South Korea have been infected with Mers and 19 were killed by the disease.
Germany reported today its first death from the Mers virus. Businesses and schools in South Korea are taking cautions as an attempt to protect themselves from the virus as they plan to reopen this week. Some cautions being taken are spraying disinfectant inside karaoke rooms and teachers sprinkling salt on school grounds. There is still no cure for the Mers virus.
