Camel Flu Bites Hoosier State Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Sun, May 4, 2014, 12:28 AM

The Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), otherwise known as Camel Flu, has struck a patient living in Indiana.

According to Reuters, "Along a stretch of rust-belt suburbia in Indiana, the Community Hospital in Munster now claims the dubious distinction of being the first U.S. facility to admit a patient with the deadly Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS)."

Camal Flu is highly contagious and deadly. The number of cases has risen dramatically in Saudi Arabia.

As reported by Reuters, "State and federal health officials confirmed the first U.S. case of the virus on Friday. The patient, a male healthcare worker, had traveled to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and began exhibiting symptoms upon his return to the United States, they said."

Early symptoms of the Camel Flu are cough, fever and shortness of breath.
