[quote] The first case of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus infection (Mers-CoV) has been confirmed in the US, the CDC reports. The virus was first detected in Saudia Arabia in November 2012, but it had not yet reached North America. The infected patient, a healthcare provider, likely caught the virus in the Middle East, the CDC said in a conference call today. The patient left Saudi Arabia on 24 April, traveled first to Chicago and then to Indiana, but did not develop symptoms until after arriving in the US. The patient was admitted to a Hospital in Indiana on 28 April, and is now in stable condition.[/quote] Dammit.
