Sindrom Pernafasan Timur Tengah (MERS) adalah penyakit pernafasan yang disebabkan oleh
virus korona, biasanya dirujuk sebagai Corona virus Sindrom PernafasanTimur Tengah, atau
MERS-CoV. MERS-CoV pertama kali dilaporkan di Arab Saudi pada September 2012. Dalam
kenyataan akhbar yang dikeluarkan pada 2 Mei 2014, Pusat Kawalan dan Pencegahan (CDC)
Amerika telah mengenal pasti 401 kes yang disahkan jangkitan MERS-CoV di 12 buah negara,
dengan kesemua laporan kes berasal dari Semenanjung Arab. Virus ini merebak dari seorang
ke seorang yang lain melalui hubungan rapat, tetapi mungkin juga merebak kepada manusia
daripada haiwan. Satu kajian ke atas unta dari Arab Saudi diterbitkan pada Disember 2013
mendedahkan kehadiran MERS-CoV dalam 90% daripada unta yang dikaji. Ini menunjukkan
bahawa unta bukan sahaja boleh menjadi takungan utama MERS-CoV, tetapi juga sumber
haiwan bagi MERS.

Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) is a respiratory illness caused by a coronavirus,


usually referred to as the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus, or MERS-CoV.
MERS-CoV was first reported in Saudi Arabia in September 2012. In a press release issued
May 2, 2014, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) of America identified 401
confirmed cases of MERS-CoV infection in 12 countries, with all reported cases originating in
the Arabian Peninsula. The virus spreads from person-to-person through close contact, but
might also be transmitted to humans from animals. A study on camels from Saudi Arabia
published in December 2013 revealed the presence of MERS-CoV in 90% of the evaluated
camels, suggesting that camels not only could be the main reservoir of MERS-CoV, but also the
animal source of MERS.
