Perspective – Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus Transmission

Emerging Infectious Diseases Journal February 2020 V.26 N.2

Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) infection causes a spectrum of respiratory illness, from asymptomatic to mild to fatal.

MERS-CoV is transmitted sporadically from dromedary camels to humans and occasionally through human-to-human contact.

Current epidemiologic evidence supports a major role in transmission for direct contact with live camels or humans with symptomatic MERS, but little evidence suggests the possibility of transmission from camel products or asymptomatic MERS cases.

Because a proportion of case-patients do not report direct contact with camels or with persons who have symptomatic MERS, further research is needed to conclusively determine additional mechanisms of transmission, to inform public health practice, and to refine current precautionary recommendations.

Research Letter – New Delhi Metallo-β-Lactamase-5–Producing Escherichia coli in Companion Animals, US

Emerging Infectious Diseases Journal February 2020 V.26 N.2

We report isolation of a New Delhi metallo-β-lactamase-5–producing carbapenem-resistant Escherichia coli sequence type 167 from companion animals in the United States.

Reports of carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae in companion animals are rare.

We describe a unique cluster of blaNDM-5–producing E. coli in a veterinary hospital.
