MERS, the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, has infected at least 40 people in South Korea and killed four.. there is a lot of fear over this SARS like virus..

The World Health Organization has taken notice and is intervening.. Not too long ago: MERS infected more than 8,000 people around the world and killed 774 before it was stopped in 2004..

Since 2012, it’s infected more than 1,180 people and killed close to 450 of them.. While MERS isn’t seemingly spread easily , the constant worry is always mutation and a syndrome becoming a genius, realizing the better way to get around and kill.. But what does spread easily? FEAR.. There are 1000 schools shut down in South Korea and an entire population donning surgical masks in public.

Though others rightfully say it’s not time to panic.
