Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) is an illness caused by a #coronavirus - called Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV). Most MERS patients developed severe acute respiratory illness with symptoms of fever, cough, and shortness of breath. There is no specific antiviral treatment recommended for MERS-CoV infection. Individuals with MERS often receive medical care to help relieve symptoms. For severe cases, current treatment includes care to support vital organ functions. This highly magnified, digitally colorized scanning electron microscopic image reveals two circular MERS-CoV viral particles, colorized blue, on the surface of a camel epithelial cell, colorized red.
