Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) is viral respiratory disease caused by a novel coronavirus (MERS‐CoV). It was first reported in Saudi Arabia in 2012 and has since spread to several other countries.

Although it is low risk to most travellers it has a 35% fatality rate, so you should seek immediate medical attention if you develop symptoms during or after travel, ensuring your travel history is mentioned.
