May 23, 2014
Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV) has caused severe respiratory illness and death in several countries. All cases have been linked, through residence or travel, to countries in and near the Arabian Peninsula. Epidemiologic investigations have demonstrated that this virus can spread from person to person during close contact, such as within families and healthcare facilities. Investigations of the two imported cases of MERS in the US are ongoing. During this COCA Call, clinicians will learn about the latest situation, surveillance, travelers' health, and updates to CDC clinical guidance for testing, patient evaluation and infection control.
