ABSTRACT

Dynamics of Interorganizational Risk Management Networks During the 2015 MERS Response in South Korea   [open html - 0B]

From the Summary: "Between May 20, 2015 and November 24, 2015 an outbreak of the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) coronavirus in South Korea resulted in the deaths of 38 people, 186 cases of infection confirmed, and the quarantine of 17,000 people. While the Korean national government and agencies have the overall responsibility for the MERS response, it is unclear as to how the principal agency had to coordinate the joint efforts from all levels of governments. This report aims to examine the dynamics of risk management networks including public, private, and nonprofit organizations engaged in the MERS response in South Korea."
