It's been reported that the first case of MERS in the U.S. has happened. The patient is a male and had just returned from guess where? The Middle East. The male flew to London and from there to Chicago. From there he took a bus to Indiana. These places have been potentially exposed to the virus and let's not forget the people he came in contact with and it's probably spreading right at this moment. They've already traced the source to camels. I'll put a link to the article below and wrote this bc I want my fellow ATS members to know about this if you already didn't. Also keep in mind MERS doesn't spread fast from human to human. The CDC doesn't know how it spreads from person to person.


MERS has finally reached the U.S.A.(potentially London)

The good news is that it is NOT easily spread from human to human.

Apparently the virus possess a very low risk to the general public. I don't know about that Spanish flu was responsible for rather a few mortality's.

No need to panic just yet - or encourage the snake oil salesmen. But the truth is, a host of deadly diseases are just a plane ride away - and they're everyone's problem. This MERS case is another reminder.


MERS Watch

MERS appeared in 2012. Camels are known to have harbored the virus for decades. But nobody knows why MERS is suddenly infecting humans. Why now? What happened? New cases do NOT come from camels, but result from human-to-human transmission, mainly in hospitals. Does modern medicine somehow inhibit our immune response? Block our natural immunities? …Nobody knows. Or maybe, nobody's talking.
