Dr Tariq Ahmed Madani, a Saudi expert on infectious diseases, has reaffirmed the link between the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and camels after research proved that the viruses isolated from a Saudi patient and his camel were 100% similar, Arab News has reported. “We have succeeded in isolating the coronavirus and proving the role of camels in transmitting this deadly virus to humans,” said Dr Madani. A total of 72 people have died from MERS out of 212 infected cases in Saudi Arabia.
