South Korea Scrambles to Contain MERS Outbreak

Hosted by

In South Korea, two people are dead, 1300 have been quarantined and 500 schools have closed their doors — all because of an outbreak of MERS, or Middle East Respiratory Syndrome. There's no vaccine and no cure. Laurie Garrett is a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter, now senior fellow for Global Health at the Council on Foreign Relations.
