    First MERS -patient in the Netherlands

    Publication Date :14 - 05-2014

    On 13 May, the RIVM and the Erasmus MC the first infection with the MERS coronavirus in a Dutch patient was identified. He became infected during a visit to Saudi Arabia and is currently admitted in the Medical Center Haaglanden Westeinde . Here the patient is nursed in strict isolation . His health condition is stable . All the people who have had contact with the patient are mapped . These people 's health condition is monitored .

    MERS infections can cause severe respiratory symptoms , especially in people with other health problems. Diarrhea symptoms may also occur. Human-to - human transmission of the MERS coronavirus is rare , except in close contact with patients and unprotected care of seriously ill people.

    Since 2012 there has been an outbreak of a new MERS coronavirus (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome ) in the Middle East. Meanwhile, more than 500 patients in the Middle East have been reported to the World Health Organization . In April and May 2014 , there is a sharp increase in the number of reports in the Middle East. The vast majority of reports come from this region ( especially Saudi Arabia , as well as Qatar , Jordan , Oman , Yemen and United Arab Emirates ) . Since last year , there are also some patients are diagnosed in the United Kingdom, France , Italy , Greece , Philippines , Malaysia , Kuwait , Tunisia , Egypt, Germany and the United States . These were travelers who have been infected in the Middle East. It is not unexpected that there is now a patient in the Netherlands . MERS coronavirus had therefore been a notifiable infectious disease .
