Earlier this week, the Florida patient with MERS was released from the hospital after recovering and then testing negative for the virus, according to CIDRAP News. Three people are known to have been infected with deadly MERS virus on US soil, and all three are now free of the virus. This means that as of today, there are no people in the US known to be infected with MERS.
Saudi Arabia has continued to report new MERS cases this week. CIDRAP News is following MERS very closely here, including reporting on cases that have not yet been confirmed by the World Health Organization.
