A score of Korean nationals in Kuwait have tested negative for Middle East respiratory syndrome.
The Foreign Ministry here said Wednesday that some 16 Koreans who had worked there with a confirmed MERS patient who is now being treated at Seoul National University Hospital were confirmed to be free of MERS.
Twenty more Koreans there are still waiting to be tested for the virus.
Meanwhile, health authorities believe the spread of MERS seems to have been contained as the confirmed MERS patient is recovering after a week's treatment and the incubation period of the disease is about a week.
