Deadly MERS Virus Has Finally Come To the USA! Man In Indiana Has Been Diagnosed!

MERS is short for Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, which first appeared in 2012. Since that time, the CDC has confirmed cases of MERS in 401 people in 12 countries, of whom 93 have been fatalities.  Saudi Arabia has been hit the hardest with 322 cases and 68 deaths.

Assistant Surgeon General Anne Schuchat, who is also the director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, said at a Friday news conference, “This is a rapidly evolving situation. The introduction of MERS-CoV is another reminder that diseases are just a plane ride away.”

Symptoms of  the deadly MERS virus include fever, cough and breathing problems, which could lead to pneumonia and kidney failure. If you begin having any of these symptoms, please see your family healthcare provider immediately.
