    One hospitalized in Van on MERS suspicion, emergency ward quarantined


    The emergency ward of a state hospital in eastern province of Van was quarantined after a person appeared at the hospital with symptoms resembling those of the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) virus.

    The 42-year-old man, whose identity has not been revealed, was taken to Van Yüzüncü Yıl University Hospital on Friday with symptoms of coughing and high fever. The emergency ward of the hospital was quarantined after the man, who reportedly works as a worker in Antalya and recently came to Van, was suspected of carrying MERS virus.

    The MERS virus, which causes coughing, fever and can lead to fatal pneumonia and kidney failure, has been reported mainly in Saudi Arabia and South Korea, but has also been imported in travellers to at least 25 countries worldwide. It kills about 38 percent of those it infects.

    The disease is known to have originated from camels and aside from travel-related dispersion, all MERS cases have been confined to the Arabian Peninsula, Lebanon, Jordan and Iran.

    The first and single MERS-related death was reported in Turkey in October of last year.
