Thanks to MERS_CoV for tweeting about this story. Via KENS5.com: Four tested in San Antonio for MERS after potential exposure. Excerpt:
Four people in San Antonio have been tested for MERS.
Two tests have come back negative and Metro Health is awaiting results on two others. Those results should be in soon.
"None of them are sick, but they all have potentially been exposed," said Dr. Thomas Schlenker with City of San Antonio Metropolitan Health District.
"If they come back positive it means that they have been in contact with the virus. It doesn't mean that they're sick, but it means that they're much more likely to get sick from it." MERS is the acronym for Middle East Respiratory Syndrome. Symptoms are similar to the flu. Patients exhibit fever, coughing and trouble breathing.
But where were these people "potentially" exposed to MERS? The report doesn't say. And San Antonio Metro Health has nothing about it on its website.
