Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) in dromedary camels in Nigeria, 2015



Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) in dromedary camels in Nigeria, 2015



Euro Surveillance 20(49):



Evidence of current and past Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) infection in dromedary camels slaughtered at an abattoir in Kano, Nigeria in January 2015, was sought by reverse transcription-quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR) and serology. MERS-CoV RNA was detected in 14 (11%) of 132 nasal swabs and antibody in 126 (96%) of 131 serum samples. Phylogenetic analyses demonstrate that the viruses in Nigeria are genetically distinct from those reported in the Arabian peninsula.
