NEWS ALERT - MERS

Middle Eastern respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) continues to spread in the Middle East and Europe, though as of June 18, CDC had not reported any cases in the U.S. FDA issued an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) on June 5, 2013, to authorize use of CDC's novel coronavirus 2012 real-time RT-PCR assay to test for MERS-CoV in clinical respiratory, blood, and stool specimens. CDC will distribute the test to qualified laboratories at: http://www.fda.gov/MedicalDevices/Safety/EmergencySituations/ucm161496.htm.
