Upcoming COCA Call/Webinar: CDC Update for Clinicians on Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV). Tuesday, May 6, 2014 at 2PM (ET) 5/5/2014
Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV) is a virus that has caused severe respiratory illness and death in the Middle East. Epidemiologic investigations have demonstrated that this virus spreads from person to person during close contact, such as within families and healthcare facilities. The first case of imported MERS-CoV was reported last week in the state of Indiana. Clinicians have a critical role in recognizing and managing suspected cases of MERS-CoV. During this COCA Call, CDC subject matter experts will discuss the epidemiology, clinical signs, and infection control recommendations for MERS-CoV.
