Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) coronavirus: Outbreak maps and graphs, South Korea

This static data visualization was created using data from FluTrackers, the World Health Organization and the Korean Broadcasting System (KBS).

Wherever possible, the dates are those for a case's onset of illness, but if that is unavailable then the date for hospitalization or if that is unclear, the date that case was reported.

Because the WHO obviously have more detailed information, I recommend you keep an eye on their site, so long as it is being maintained, for more accurate epidemic curves.
