After first naming camels, researchers now say bats are the source of mysterious Middle East virus MERS

Posted on August 23, 2013 by The Extinction Protocol
August 23, 2013 – SAUDI ARABIA – Bats in Saudi Arabia appear to be the source of a mysterious virus that has claimed the lives of 47 and sickened 96 in the Middle East and Europe since last September, health officials reported Wednesday. For more than 15 months, officials have tried to determine what sparked the outbreak of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS). They have identified bats with similar viruses in Africa and Eastern Europe, but had not yet found an exact match to MERS. In the report released published Aug. 21 in Emerging Infectious Diseases, an international team of doctors from EcoHealth Alliance and Columbia University’s Center for Infection and Immunity pointed to the Egyptian tomb bat, an insect-eating bat that does not typically bite humans or come near human food supplies. Researchers collected about 100 fecal samples from seven species of bats living in three locations, veterinary epidemiologist Jonathan Epstein, of EcoHealth Alliance, explained to CBSNews.com. One of the bats was a perfect match for the MERS coronavirus. Coronaviruses are a family of viruses that cause conditions ranging from the common cold to severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), which killed about 800 people during a 2003 pandemic. The infected bat lived in an abandoned house in Bisha, a small city in Saudi Arabia where the first victim fell ill. The victim was a wealthy 60-year-old man who owned a paint warehouse, according to Dr. W. Ian Lipkin of Columbia.

The warehouse’s large garden included fruit trees and insects that often attract bats. Epstein added that while it is exciting to find an exact match in one sample, more testing is definitely needed. “The finding in bats is very exciting because there’s insight into the virus, but what we still need to learn is how it’s getting from bats into people,’ Epstein said. “We’re still trying to understand the role that other animals such as sheep or camels can play.” One concept is that the virus become airborne once an infected bat’s feces dry. People, such as shepherds, squatting in the abandoned buildings, where the bats nest may breathe in particles of the virus if dust is kicked up. Animals may have contract it in the same fashion, and then transfer it to humans. Camels, goats, sheep and cows are also being tested for the virus, according Lipkin. Previous reports pointed to camels as the source of the virus. “We really want to understand if there are other animals involved in transmission to people,” Epstein said, explaining that MERS could spread the same way as the SARS virus. “SARS coronavirus is carried by horseshoe bats, but transmission happened in a live animal market in China.” MERS’ mortality rate is currently 60 percent, but that number might decline as more cases are being reported of younger victims with milder symptoms, Memish noted. Most of the victims have thus far been old and had chronic conditions such as diabetes or heart disease. –CBS [link to theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com]

Disease watch: New Chinese bird flu may be worse than H7N9 virus

'August 24, 2013 – CHINA - A virus called H7N7 has been discovered in chickens in China, according to a new study published in the journal Nature. A team of Hong Kong researchers found the virus in about 25 percent of the fowl sampled, many of which also had the H7N9 virus. By testing the H7N7 virus on ferrets, the researchers found that it can be transmitted to mammals. “If (we) let this H7N7 continue circulating in chickens, I am sure that human infection cases will occur,” study co-author Guan Yi at the University of Hong Kong told AFP...'

Mapping The Spread & Risk Of H7N9 In China

[link to afludiary.blogspot.ca]

With H5N1 still in the wings, and the upstart H7N9 and MERS coronavirus making menacing overtures, infectious disease watchers and public health authorities have their hands full right now, just trying to keep track.  This week we’ve seen the CDC issue new guidance on MERS-CoV along with an IHR Emergency Committee meeting, and warnings from the Chinese government to remain alert for the H7N9 avian flu virus.


Despite these warnings and preparations, no one knows if any of these viruses will pose a serious public health risk this fall and winter.  Officials just know they could.  And while we watch this trio of emerging diseases, we could easily get blind-sided by something else.  

*also saw something about 4possible new MERS cases, but not confirmed
will keep looking.

Health officials say the situation is “serious” after a domestic worker was hospitalized in November.

H7N9, an influenza virus that normally infects birds such as chickens and wild geese, first jumped to human hosts in China early this year. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 20% of those infected have died, but the virus does not spread easily from person to person — at least not yet. So far, the World Health Organization says 137 people have been sickened by H7N9 and 45 have died. Here’s what you need to know about the latest bird flu and whether it poses a threat in the U.S.

2 December 2013 - On 1 December 2013 WHO was informed of an additional three laboratory-confirmed cases of infection with Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) in the United Arab Emirates

The three cases belong to a family in Abu Dhabi – a mother (32 years old) who died 2 December 2013*, father (38 years old) and son (8 years old). The earliest onset of illness was 15 November 2013. The father is in a critical condition in hospital. The mother and father had no travel history, no contact with a known confirmed case and no history of contact with animals. While hospitalized, the mother gave birth to a newborn child. The 8 year old son, who has mild respiratory symptoms, was detected from epidemiological investigation of family contacts, and is being kept in hospital isolation. Further investigations into close contacts of the family, the newborn baby, and healthcare workers are on-going.

Additionally, two previously laboratory-confirmed cases from Qatar died on 15 and 21 November 2013**.

Globally, from September 2012 to date, WHO has been informed of a total of 163 laboratory-confirmed cases of infection with MERS-CoV, including 71 deaths.

Demographics of Hong Kong

The territory's population in 2011 is 7.07 million, with an average annual growth rate of 0.6% over the previous five years.[3] Residents from mainland China do not have the right of abode in Hong Kong, nor are they allowed to enter the territory freely.[94] However, the influx of immigrants from mainland China, approximating 45,000 per year, is a significant contributor to its population growth – a daily quota of 150 Mainland Chinese with family ties in Hong Kong are granted a "one way permit".[172] Life expectancy in Hong Kong is 79.16 years for males and 84.79 years for females as of 2009, making it one of the highest life expectancies in the world.[2]

Hong Kong Confirms Second Human Case of H7N9 Bird Flu

HONG KONG—Within just five days, Hong Kong confirmed the city's second human case of the deadly H7N9 bird flu, though authorities contend that the risk of an outbreak remains low.

The government said late Friday that an 80-year-old man, who resides in the neighboring city of Shenzhen, was infected with the bird flu virus. The elderly man's family members brought him to a Hong Kong hospital on Tuesday for treatment of diabetes and heart disease, though he didn't show fever symptoms until Friday.

Authorities said they are still investigating whether the man had come into intact with live poultry. The H7N9 strain of bird flu was confirmed to have made the jump from birds to humans for the first time in March, when China's state media reported that two people in Shanghai had died after being infected with the virus in February.
