MERS is a zoonotic disease transmitted from dromedaries to humans. The spread has mainly occurred in hospitals and most commonly occurs in Saudi Arabia where, so far, 2000 people have been infected with a fatality rate of 40%. In the future, prevention will be through vaccination of humans having contact with dromedaries and/or vaccination of dromedaries.
