Introduction Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) is a novel pathogen that was isolated in late 2012 . Since then, the virus has caused multiple outbreaks and infected more than 2000 individuals,  who then develop a respiratory infection ranging in severity from asymptomatic to fatal [3,4]. UNIVERSITY ROTTERDAM 26/11/19 Thèse en ligne: MERS Coronavirus at the Human-Animal Interface. RESPIROLOGY 07/02/19 Severe acute respiratory syndrome and other emerging severe respiratory viral infections. In the World Health Organization (WHO) updated list of blue‐print priority diseases, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) are included together with disease X, which represents the concept that a pathogen currently unknown to cause human disease may lead to a serious international epidemic.1 SARS‐coronavirus (SARS‐CoV) first emerged in November 2002 in Foshan, China, where many healthcare workers (HCW) became infected.
On 21 February 2003, a 64‐year‐old male nephrologist from Guangdong Province took the infection to Hong Kong (HK) where the infection spread to 29 countries/regions within a few weeks by 16 hotel guests and visitors who were infected by the physician. SARS‐CoV spreads predominantly via respiratory droplets and contact with fomite2 but opportunistic airborne transmission is possible. The incubation period of MERS‐CoV infection is over 5 days, but may be as long as 2 weeks (median: 5.2 days (95% CI: 1.9–14.7)).

Chowell, F. Abdirizak, S. NIH_GOV 14/08/18 NIH study shows how MERS coronavirus evolves to infect different species. THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY 14/05/18 New pig virus found to be a potential threat to humans - Study first to show possible cross-species transmission of recently discovered coronavirus. By: Misti Crane Published on May 14, 2018 COLUMBUS, Ohio – A recently identified pig virus can readily find its way into laboratory-cultured cells of people and other species, a discovery that raises concerns about the potential for outbreaks that threaten human and animal health.
Researchers at The Ohio State University and Utrecht University in the Netherlands collaborated to better understand the new virus and its potential reach. Their study, the first to point to possible transmission of this virus between species, appears online in the journal PNAS. Porcine deltacoronavirus was first identified in 2012 in pigs in China, but it was not associated with disease. “Before it was found in pigs – including in the Ohio outbreak – it had only been found in various birds,” said study senior author Linda Saif, an investigator in Ohio State’s Food Animal Health Research Program at the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center (OARDC), in Wooster.

Public health labs across the country are prepared and ready to test for the virus. Situational Update The Illinois businessman who met with the Indiana MERS patient was not infected with MERS-CoV, according to an announcement by the CDC on May 28. The man, who had tested positive for MERS-CoV on an earlier serology test, tested negative on a more sensitive blood test. Researchers continue to investigate whether asymptomatic or mildly ill patients can transmit MERS-CoV.

JAMA 13/12/16 Health Workers’ Risks for Respiratory Virus (MERS-CoV) BMC 25/08/16 Risk of MERS importation and onward transmission: a systematic review and analysis of cases reported to WHO. The large number of cases reported in the South Korean outbreak following a MERS case importation generated substantial concern on the risks that countries face towards importation and possible onward transmission.
Our quantitative analysis provide important information that can help preparedness and response to such events: MERS international dissemination is strongly associated to air travel flows combined with cases incidence in the source area; transmission is more likely to occur in hospitals; large outbreaks are possible though rare; and high attention to MERS epidemic in the public and among professionals lead to efficient case management. The role of air travel as driver for pathogen international dissemination has been considered in several prospective studies [28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37], with few retrospective validations [33, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42].

Singer, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL, and approved June 14, 2016 (received for review September 29, 2015) Significance Since it was discovered in 2012, Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) has infected more than 1,700 persons, one-third of whom died, essentially in the Middle East. Persons can get infected by direct or indirect contact with dromedary camels, and although human-to-human transmission is not self-sustaining in the Middle East, it can nonetheless generate large outbreaks, particular in hospital settings. VIRUS EVOLUTION 12/06/15 MERS-CoV recombination: implications about the reservoir and potential for adaptation. UNIVERSITY OF VETERINARY MEDICINE HANNOVER 18/12/15 MERS virus – Drying out the reservoir. The recently discovered coronavirus now referred to as MERS (for Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) causes an infectious respiratory disease in humans, which can be fatal.
The virus is thought to be transmitted to humans primarily via contact with dromedary camels. Now researchers led by virologist Gerd Sutter at LMU Munich, in collaboration with teams led by Professor Bart L. Haagmans of the Erasmus Medical Center (MC) in Rotterdam and Professor Albert Osterhaus of University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover, Foundation (TiHo), have successfully tested a candidate vaccine against MERS, in camels.
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2015 Sep 15; No evidence for a superior platform to develop therapeutic antibodies rapidly in response to MERS-CoV and other emerging viruses. Author Affiliations Pascal et al. (1) generated mAbs using a platform called VelocImmune and evaluated their potency against the Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) in vitro side by side with mAbs previously reported and in a mouse model developed by using VelociGene technology. The authors concluded that “Traditional approaches for development of antibodies are poorly suited to combating the emergence of novel pathogens…and that this study forms the basis for a rapid response to address the public threat resulting from emerging coronaviruses or other pathogens that pose a serious threat to human health in the future.”
To support the superiority of their approach, as implied by this statement, the authors cited human mAbs previously published by three groups (2⇓–4) and compared some of them with their own REGN3051 and REGN3048, which they found to be “more effective neutralizers than previously isolated MERS-CoV monoclonal antibodies.” Footnotes.

The MERS Coronavirus (MERS Co-V) emerged in 2012 and continues to cause illness and death more than 2 years later. It has been compared to SARS, which caused a pandemic more than 10 years ago, and public health response to MERS-CoV has been modeled on the response to SARS.

PLOS 12/11/13 State of Knowledge and Data Gaps of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV) in Humans. Background The first case of a novel coronavirus, now called Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV), was identified in a patient with acute pneumonia and renal failure in Jeddah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) in June 2012 1. Following identification of the virus a subsequent case from Qatar who was being treated in the UK was identified 2 and a hospital cluster of pneumonia among health care workers in Zarqa, Jordan in March/April of 2012 was retrospectively determined to have been caused by the same virus 3. Since then, as of 22 October 2013, 144 laboratory-confirmed and 17 probable MERS-CoV cases from nine countries (Figure 1a) have been notified to the World Health Organization (WHO) 3,4,5,6 in accordance with the provisions of the International Health Regulations (2005).
WHO, in coordination and cooperation with its affected member states, and an informal network of academic and public health researchers, has compiled available information on MERS-CoV.

The majority of cases have been detected in Saudi Arabia although cases were also reported in Jordan, Oman, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and Yemen.
Countries in Asia, Europe and North Africa have reported individual cases in travellers returning from the Middle East. The last countries that reported their first imported MERS-CoV case include Egypt and the United States of America. The past few weeks have seen a sharp increase in the number of human cases, mostly in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Multiple new infections have been reported on a frequent basis since early April 2014 in Jeddah, Mecca and Riyadh prompting speculation that the virus may have evolved.
