Most recently I had a patient come in who had Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS)/Camel Flu. The camel flu is a respiratory infection caused by MERS-coronavirus. The virus was known in Arabia Peninsula because of the most presenting symptoms. Normally spread by close contact with an infected person, disease spread from a mild to severe range. There are no vaccines or treatments for the disease, but antiviral medications are being studied.
