MUNSTER, Ind. May 5 (Reuters) - All workers at the Indiana hospital where the first U.S. case of the often deadly Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) was confirmed last week have tested negative for the virus, Don Fesko, CEO of Community Hospital in Munster, Indiana, said on Monday.
About three-quarters of the people who came in contact with the MERS patient during his travel from Saudi Arabia, where he lives and works, have been contacted by health officials, a Centers for Disease Control official told a joint news conference.
