MERS is a kind of “coronavirus” known as the Middle East respiratory syndrome. It’s spread by camels. The first case has been reported in the U.S., reportedly involving an Indiana health worker who had been traveling in Saudi Arabia.
FYI: The MERS patient flew through O’Hare airport in Chicago.
Break out the face masks.
The U.S. CDC is investigating.
Keep calm and wash your hands.
