What of Marlboro's do you smoke? And don't you know it's not polite to smoke someone else's property?

Don't knock it 'til you've tried it.

Too many people being exposed to too many viruses they've never encountered before.

It took years for the plague to move around Europe. What probably brought the plague to Europe was the Mongols reinstituting the Silk Road trade model.

Nowadays with our high speed, global travel, it will take days to kill off a few billion people. Just the right bug with the right vector.

It's been suspected that the source was camels since 2013 when antibodies to MERS was found in camels in Abu Dhabi, but Saudi Arabia, the epicenter of the outbreak, wasn't willing to co-operate with the WHO. Now the outbreak has gotten far worse, so Saudi Arabia finally provided camels for the WHO to test who carried the actual virus, not just antibodies to the virus, confirming MERS is carried and likely transmitted by camels.

when i hear about the MERS virus, i think: holy shiat,the mortgage electronic registration system has been hacked!!!!1!1!1!!  who owns all the houses???!?

And now it's mutated to allow human-to-human transmission, because health care workers are getting it. Wheee!

I see lots of camels on eBay and Craigslist, after that article came out. Do these people think other people do not read the news?

Why are camels called the 'ships of the desert'?

Because they are full of Arab seamen.

Good, we can only hope a super-bug hits and we get an infection and death rate of the 1918 flu, or better.

It doesn't sound like they have identified camels as the reservior host but rather a host. I'm thinking that it's going to come out that something else is the reservior and camels are an amplifier host.

Spread among humans is not indicative of mutation. It's indicative of an opportunistic bug in the right conditions. It may well be that there are patients acting as super spreaders much like with SARS.

Zoonosis is fascinating.

This is the question right now in my head... How long until someone (most likely a right wing talking head) decides the MERS virus coming from camels means Arabic people are farking their camels like how they figured AIDS came from idiots screwing monkeys...? And obviously once that "link" is made, how long until they claim it's "The Christian God's divine punishment for worshipping a false idol"...?

Well this article doesn't exactly do that but conveniently makes bi-directional accusations that some muslims think it's the Jeeewwwwsss! and some Christians view it as a sign that the God of Islam is not the one true God.

So we are getting closer.  Wait until it picks up a bit more steam.
