The Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) is a novel zoonotic pathogen that emerged in the human population in 2012. Since that time, MERS-CoV has been implicated in numerous human infections, and case fatality rates have hovered around 40%. Many questions regarding this pathogen’s origins, ecology, and pathogenesis remain unanswered, but research has revealed many interesting aspects of the biology of MERS-CoV. In this webinar, Dr. Neeltje van Doremalen (Rocky Mountain Laboratories, NIH), will discuss the known history of MERS-CoV and will provide an update on what is currently known about the ecology, epidemiology, diagnosis, and pathogenesis of this emerging pathogen.
