Update: Recommendations for Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV)



Update: Recommendations for Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV)



Mmwr. Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report 62(27): 557-557



On June 11, 2013, CDC issued interim infection prevention and control recommendations for hospitalized patients with known or suspected Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) infection in U.S. hospitals. To date, no MERS-CoV cases have been reported in the United States; however, cases have been reported in eight other countries. Recent published reports have described limited health-care transmission of MERS-CoV, including cases among health-care personnel in international settings. These published reports highlight the need for rapid detection of infectious patients and adherence to correct infection prevention measures to prevent transmission of the virus among patients, health-care personnel, and visitors.
