The patient once thought to be the last South Korean with Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) has been rediagnosed with the viral disease, officials said on Monday.

The 35-year-old patient, who had tested negative for the MERS virus in two tests on September 30th and October 1st, has been infected again, the Health Ministry said.

Earlier in the day, the ministry said the patient had been admitted to Seoul National University Hospital with a high fever. 61 doctors and relatives who had come in contact with the patient were quarantined.

After the patient had tested negative, the government was to officially declare the end of the MERS outbreak on October 29th, twenty-eight days after the test results became available.

No additional cases or fatalities from MERS had been reported since July until Monday.
