The novel coronavirus: By Carmen Chai - June 3, 2013   

The World Health Organization is calling it “a threat to the entire world.” And with good reason: the new SARS-like virus, named MERS-CoV, has now seeped into a handful of European nations, with 51 lab-confirmed cases, and 30 deaths.

It’s been over a year since the first few cases of the disease were identified in Amman, Jordan. In the past few weeks, it’s gained in speed: over the weekend, three more people died from the new respiratory virus. The first cases appeared in Jordan and Saudi Arabia. In April 2012, the first cluster of two cases – both fatal – tested positive for the coronavirus in Amman, Jordan. By October 2012, a second cluster that included four family members was identified. In that case, two people died, according to the Centers for Disease Control. By October 2010, another family of four was diagnosed with coronavirus. Two people died. So far, most cases appear to be men between 24 and 94 years old.
