What Have We Learned About Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus Emergence in Humans? A Systematic Literature Review

There has been substantial MERS-CoV research since 2012, but significant knowledge gaps persist, especially in epidemiology and natural history of the infection. There have been few rigorous studies of baseline prevalence, transmission, and spectrum of disease.

Mystery Patient Drill Toolkit

This toolkit is intended for use by hospital emergency departments, and tests how long it takes for a potential patient with a highly infectious disease to be identified and for staff to begin exposure mitigation procedures; how long it takes for a patient to be transferred to an isolation room; and the capability of the facility to make notifications internally and to the health department.

Infection control influence of Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus: A hospital-based analysis

During the study, the use of personal protective equipment after the occurrence of Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) infections compared with the period before MERS infections increased dramatically from 2,947.4 to 10,283.9 per 1,000 patient-days for surgical masks and from 22 to 232 per 1,000 patient-days for N95 masks.
