MERS: Patient With Possible Case of Illness Admitted to Alabama Hospital, Health Officials Say

The Alabama Department of Public Health’s State Laboratory is currently running a panel of
respiratory tests, including one for Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MER-CoV), on an
individual in Alabama. The individual presented to a hospital in the state on August 13, with
respiratory problems. Because of a history of recently returning from Saudi Arabia, the patient
was placed in negative pressure isolation and a decision was made to perform a respiratory
panel of tests.

There are currently no results available at this time.
