SARS-like cases detected in Middle East
- Saudi Arabia: Tuesday, September 25 - 2012 at 09:09
The World Health Organisation (WHO) has said new virus related to those that cause severe acute respiratory syndrome was identified in a 49-year-old Qatari man, prompting further research into the potentially fatal pathogen, Bloomberg has reported. The so-called coronavirus was detected after the man was diagnosed with acute respiratory syndrome and kidney failure. He had travelled to Saudi Arabia and Qatar before being transferred to the UK by air ambulance on September 11, the WHO said. "As we are aware of only two cases worldwide and there is no evidence of ongoing transmission, at present there is no specific action for the public or returning travellers to take," John Watson, head of the UK's Health Protection Agency respiratory diseases department, said.
