Tests have ruled out the potentially fatal MERS virus in a Czech man hospitalized in Prague, the country’s chief hygiene officer Vladimir Valenta reported on Friday. The patient, a man from Ostrava who had recently travelled to South Korea, remains at Prague’s Na Bulovce hospital for further tests and treatment. The 49 people who were placed in quarantine in connection with the case will be released immediately. It was the country’s second MERS scare and Mr. Valenta said that the measures undertaken showed that the authorities were well prepared to deal with a potential crisis.
