SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - South Korea is reporting an 11th death from the MERS virus outbreak, but officials say they are seeing a fewer number of new infections.

More than 120 people in South Korea have contracted Middle East respiratory syndrome since the country reported its first case last month.

The outbreak has been contained only in hospitals but it has caused widespread fears and rumors.

More than 2,700 schools remain closed Friday.
