1) Avian influenza virus (H7N9);
2) Middle East Respiratory Coronavirus Syndrome (MERS CoV).
Recently, we have recorded the appearance of two completely different viruses with a high pathogenic effect and a rapid rate of exposure of the infected person. Both viruses have super-persistent potential regarding the process of their evolution and spread. The first outbreaks of the disease were noted in 2012, in the spring. Of the 44 laboratory-recorded cases, 22 were fatal. About 80% of the total number of cases are men aged 24 to 94 years.
MERS virus - epidemiology
Places of infection:
public (isolated cases);
medical facilities (both employees of medical organizations and patients);
family (household contacts with the infected);
Countries where coronavirus infects people while traveling
Countries where the source of infection is not established
However, to date, the relationship between the individual cases of the Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus is not clear, therefore, the study of infection routes continues.
