What is MERS-COV?
Source: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/262538.php
"Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV), previously known as novel coronavirus (nCoV), is a viral respiratory illness, which was first reported in Saudi Arabia, in 2012. The source of the virus is currently unknown, though it is likely to have originated from an animal.
MERS-CoV is dissimilar to other coronaviruses; there is currently no vaccine.

Most confirmed cases of MERS-CoV have displayed symptoms of severe acute respiratory illness, 30% of these patients have died.
The cause of MERS-CoV is not yet fully understood. Although not confirmed, the infection could be primarily zoonotic in nature, with limited human-to-human transmission. It is thought mammals play a role in the transmission of the virus - bats and camels remaining a high contender.
Signs and Symptoms:
Fever 100 degrees F or higher
Breathing difficulties
Chest pain
Body aches
Sore throat
Malaise - a general feeling of being unwell
Runny nose
Renal (kidney) failure
According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and WHO (World Health Organization), there are no specific treatments for patients who become ill with MERS-CoV infection."
