Malaysia : MERS scare - Intense monitoring on 15 pilgrims to continue for two weeks

Article via NST, excerpt :

" The intense monitoring on the 15 pilgrims who boarded a flight with the sole victim to die from the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) recently has been extended for another two weeks.

Health Minister Datuk Seri S. Subramaniam said the move was to ensure the pilgrims were completely free from the outbreak to prevent any spreading in the country.

The ministry, he said, would continue to conduct the monitoring of the outbreak seriously, especially at the nation's key entry-points.

"We will do the screenings which focussed on flights from the Middle East and on those who had returned from performing their Umrah pilgrimage," he told a press conference after launching the ministry's 'Jom Aktif' programme, here, yesterday."
