This news reminds us of the movie "Outbreak"  Only the "Outbreak" movie is about Ebolah virus.  It is active now in Africa in Guinea and has killed a number

There are now two confirmed cases of MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) in Malaysia and Philippines  One Filipino died in Saudi on April 10, 2014.  There is another Filipino a male nurse and is in the hospital MERS surfaced in KSA in February 2012

Is it an outbreak?


It  has for infected 244 and killed 76. 49 new cases have been reported in last 6 days alone (since April 20, 2014) What is worrisome about the disease is its silent spread;  most of the victims has no known contact.  The disease affects mostly health workers and are on protest.

The situation is critical because of the forthcoming Hajj in Jeddah where there will be a huge crowd huge #of people.

MERS coronavirus resides in camels

Could this be similar to SARS from Taiwan?

Could this spread worlwide?  Is this a cause for concern?
