Human infection with MERS coronavirus after exposure to infected camels, Saudi Arabia, 2013.
Emerg Infect Dis. 2014 Jun; 20(6):1012-5.EI

Abstract

We investigated a case of human infection with Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) after exposure to infected camels. Analysis of the whole human-derived virus and 15% of the camel-derived virus sequence yielded nucleotide polymorphism signatures suggestive of cross-species transmission. Camels may act as a direct source of human MERS-CoV infection.
