    Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV) is a newly identified virus that can cause severe acute respiratory illness and death. MERS cases have been linked to the Middle East, and there is documented spread of the virus internationally. So far, no cases of MERS have been reported in the United States. However, clinicians need to remain vigilant. Epidemiologic investigations have demonstrated that this unique virus spreads from person to person during close contact, such as within families and healthcare facilities. Clinicians have a critical role in recognizing and managing suspect cases of MERS. During this COCA call, a CDC subject matter expert will discuss the clinical signs, epidemiology and infection control recommendations for MERS-CoV.
