Thanks to Gregory Härtl for tweeting the link to this April 20 WHO news release: WHO/Europe | Influenza - MERS-CoV update: Greece reports first case. Excerpt:
On 18 April 2014, the Ministry of Health in Greece reported one laboratory-confirmed case of infection with Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV).
The patient is a 69-year-old male Greek citizen residing in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, who travelled back to Greece on 17 April. While in Jeddah, the patient consulted a hospital on 8 and 10 April for a febrile illness with diarrhoea. He was diagnosed with probable typhoid fever and treated. He had regularly visited his wife who was hospitalised from 31 March to 5 April in the same hospital for confirmed typhoid fever.
The patient sought medical care upon arrival in Greece on 17 April. The evaluation revealed a bilateral pneumonia and the diagnosis of MERS-CoV infection was made at the National Reference Laboratory for Influenza.
The patient is in stable condition and is receiving appropriate treatment.
This is the first case of MERS-CoV infection in Greece.
Individuals who had close contacts with the patient in the plane, the hospital in Greece and in the community have been identified and are being contacted. So far, none of the contacts has fallen ill.
Hellenic health authorities issued a press release to inform the population and informed all Greek hospitals on measures that need be taken to identify suspect patients and implement appropriate preventive measures.
I've checked a lot of Greek media websites tonight, and none mention this case. Maybe tomorrow.
It would be useful to know if the man's wife was recovering from typhoid in a hospital with MERS patients. In Jeddah, that would seem extremely likely.
