MERS-CoV Infection of Alpaca in a Region Where MERS-CoV is Endemic - Volume 22, Number 6—June 2016

Although numerous studies have looked at other livestock in the Middle East region, evidence for MERS-CoV infection has only been found in dromedaries (1). Extensive and continuous circulation of MERS-CoV occurs in the Al Shahaniya region of Qatar, most likely because of the presence of an international camel racing track and numerous barns holding camels (2,3). In April 2015, we investigated the MERS-CoV infection status of 15 healthy alpacas (Vicugna pacos) in a herd of 20 animals and 10 healthy dromedaries in a herd of 25 animals at a farm in this region (Technical Appendix[PDF - 394 KB - 2 pages]( CDC EID - JUNE 2016 - MERS-CoV Infection of Alpaca in a Region Where MERS-CoV is Endemic.

Suggested citation for this article To the Editor: Coronaviruses (CoVs) in bats are genetically diverse, and evidence suggests they are ancestors of Middle East respiratory virus CoV (MERS-CoV), severe acute respiratory syndrome CoV, and human CoVs 229E and NL63 (1–4).

Surveillance for Coronaviruses in Bats, Lebanon and Egypt, 2013–2015 - Volume 22, Number 1—January 2016

We tested several bat species in Lebanon and Egypt to understand the diversity of bat CoVs there. Samples were collected during February 2013–April 2015. A total of 821 bats were captured live in their caves; sampled (oral swab, rectal swab, serum); and released, except for 72 bats that died or were euthanized upon capture. Lungs and livers of euthanized bats were harvested and homogenized. In Egypt, we sampled 3 bat species (Technical Appendix 1[PDF - 377 KB - 5 pages]( Eighty-two Egyptian tomb bats (Taphozous perforatus) tested negative for CoV. In Lebanon, we sampled 4 bat species.

Most of the positive samples were detected in Egyptian fruit bats. Mahmoud M. CDC EID - JANV 2016 – Au sommaire: Objective Determination of End of MERS Outbreak, South Korea, 2015. Suggested citation for this article To the Editor: After not finding any additional cases of Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) for several weeks in South Korea, in July 2015, the South Korean government and the World Health Organization (WHO) discussed the appropriate time to declare the end of the outbreak in July 2015 (1).

This declaration would enable allocation of human resources to healthcare facilities to return to normal and would help restore international travel to the country. A widely acknowledged criteria of WHO to determine the end of an epidemic has been twice the length of the incubation period since the most recently diagnosed case (2). For MERS, the longest incubation period is 14 days. Thus, adopting 28 days as the waiting period, and counting days from diagnosis of the most recent case on July 4, 2015, the earliest date the South Korean government could have declared the end of outbreak was August 2 if it adhered to WHO criteria (1).

During 2013–2014, the department investigated 54 travelers for MERS-CoV; none tested positive, but 32 (62%) of 52 travelers with suspected MERS-CoV had other respiratory viruses. Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) has been a global concern since its discovery in Saudi Arabia in 2012. Each year, an estimated 16 million international travelers visit California (4), of whom 225,000 are visitors from the Middle East (5); thus, a risk exists for importation of MERS-CoV into California.

Absence of MERS-Coronavirus in Bactrian Camels, Southern Mongolia, November 2014 ; Suggested citation for this article To the Editor: Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) was first identified among humans in 2012 in Saudi Arabia (1). As of February 5, 2015, a total of 971 MERS cases and 356 associated deaths had been confirmed (2). Because MERS is a zoonotic disease, it is essential that the animal reservoirs and hosts that sustain virus circulation in nature be identified. Seroepidemiologic and virologic studies have demonstrated evidence of MERS-CoV infection in dromedary camels (Camelus dromedarius) in the Arabian Peninsula (3), and viruses isolated from dromedaries appear capable of infecting the human respiratory tract (4).

In some instances, MERS-CoV infection in dromedaries has preceded infection in humans (5), indicating that dromedaries are a natural host for MERS-CoV and a possible source of human infection. Two species of camels exist: 1-hump dromedaries (C. dromedarius) and 2-hump Bactrian camels (C. bactrianus). CDC EID - Volume 21, Number 7—July 2015.
