First MERS case in Thailand

Thailand confirmed their first MERS (Middle East respiratory syndrome) case. Meanwhile, South Korea has 166 cases of this disease. This country is most affected by it. According to, Rajata Rajatanavin, public health minister of Thailand, the first person tested positive for MERS is a 75-year-old man. He is from the Middle East. 
At the same time, in South Korea, the Ministry of Health and Welfare announced that their 166th case of MERS is treated at the Samsung Medical Center in Seoul. 

MERS is a disease caused by the Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus, also known as MERS-CoV. It started in Saudi Arabia, in 2012. Since then, it has spread to several other countries, including the United States. People, infected with MERS, develop severe acute respiratory illness. Also, they experience fever, shortness of breath and cough. 36% of people infected with MERS have died. Scientists still don’t know where MERS-CoV comes from, but some claim that it arose in animals. In several countries, MERS-CoV has been found in camels. There is some evidence that MERS-CoV may have started in bats. 

This first case of MERS in Thailand means that 16 countries, in total, have confirmed cases. Other countries are: Netherlands, Malaysia, Greece, Philippines, South Korea, Turkey, Tunisia, Germany, Egypt, Italy, the United Kingdom, the United States, China, Austria and France. Countries near or in the Arabian Peninsula: Kuwait, Jordan, Lebanon, Qatar, Yemen, United Arab Emirates, Oman and Iran, also reported MERS cases. It is believed that a person with MERS in Thailand, have traveled from Oman. 
WHO (World Health Organization) says that this is ‘’a wakeup call’’. They also claim that PHEIC (Public Health Emergency of International Concern) conditions have not been met.
