Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) is an illness caused by a virus (more specially, a coronavirus) called Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Cornonavirus (MERS-Cov). MERS affects the respiratory system (lungs and breathing tubes). Most MERS patients developed severe acute respiratory illness with symptoms of fever, cough and shortness of breath. About 3-4 out of every 10 patients reported with MERS have died.
