The Seoul Metropolitan Office of Education said Wednesday that 126 kindergartens and elementary schools in Gangnam and Seocho districts will stay closed until Friday. The office decided to extend the closure for another two days as the spread of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome has not diminished yet. 

However, a joint team of WHO investigators and Korean health officials said Wednesday that no MERS infection has occurred anywhere other than in hospitals, and urged schools to consider reopening.
