Camel Flu 'No Problem,' Says WHO Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Thu, May 15, 2014, 02:11 AM

The World Health Organization (WHO) is refusing to issue a health emergency alert on the deadly MERS virus, otherwise known as Camel Flu.

Reuters reports that, "Concern about the deadly new Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) virus has "significantly increased" but the disease does not yet constitute a global public health emergency, the World Health Organisation (WHO) said on Wednesday."

WHO is quoted as saying that, "The committee concluded that the conditions for a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) have not yet been met."

According to Reuters, "The virus, which causes coughing, fever and sometimes fatal pneumonia, has been reported in more than 500 patients in Saudi Arabia alone and has spread to neighboring countries and in a few cases, to Europe and Asia. It kills about 30 percent of those who are infected."

The MERS virus originated from camels.
