Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) is a disease that can cause symptoms like those of pneumonia, along with severe shortness of breath. Amid reports of South Korea being hit by the MERS outbreak, a South Korean man thought to have contracted the potentially deadly MERS virus was hospitalized in the Slovak capital Bratislava on Saturday, June 13, 2015.
Petra Stano Matasovska, from Bratislava's university hospital, said, "He is a 38-year-old man from South Korea who is suffering from diarrhea, fever and lesions on his skin. The results of blood tests were expected to be released on Sunday, June 14, 2015."
