Thousands of South Korean schools that were shut by worries over Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) reopened Monday as the country sought to return to normal, nearly four weeks into an outbreak that showed signs of slowing.The Health Ministry said it was moving to quarantine more than 5,500 people who may have been exposed to the MERS virus at a prominent Seoul hospital, which has suspended most services after becoming a new epicenter of the outbreak.The WHO last week recommended schools be reopened, saying schools have not been linked to transmission of the MERS virus in South Korea or elsewhere.The school was one of the first to shut as the fear of MERS spread two weeks ago.
