Abstract

Timely and transparent information release to the public is key for successful health communications. As the MERS outbreak in the Republic of Korea has now apparently subsided and probably will end soon, we believe that the lessons learnt about outbreak communication will help the Republic of Korea and other countries better prepare for any future imported cases of MERS and other emerging diseases.
