Mike Coston at Avian Flu Diary has posted this: Bangladesh Reports Imported MERS Case. Click through to read the whole piece, which includes two news stories. Excerpt:
Although details are still sketchy, and I find no official mention on the Bangladesh’s IEDCR website, there are widespread media reports this morning (Reuters, Daily Star, Bangladesh News Service) announcing that country’s first imported MERS case.
The intriguing aspect of this story is that the patient was en route from the US to Bangladesh via Abu Dhabi, where he presumably contracted the disease. So his activities in Abu Dhabi might provide a clue as to the source of the infection...and might help trace some unrecognized cases as well.
