So far this is just one case.
“No details about the case have been released. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention planned a Friday afternoon briefing about the case.
The CDC says it is investigating along with health officials in Indiana.”May 2, 2014 at 7:47 pm #12136
He flew from riyadh, to london, to chicago, and now in indiana. Plenty of potential for passing off the virus to other people.

Needless to say as an Indiana resident, I sure would like to know where in Indiana this patient is. I too wonder how many people he came in close enough contact to traveling from Riyadh to Chicago, to spread the infection. It does sound like CDC has jumped on this quickly. Something to watch closely.May 2, 2014 at 8:33 pm #12139
Makes me glad we’re nowhere near Ill-iana.May 2, 2014 at 8:40 pm #12140
Well the passengers of the airplane need to be looked at ASAP!May 2, 2014 at 9:11 pm #12143
One of the big reasons I avoid flying now if at all possible…and avoid places where large groups and crowds congregate.May 2, 2014 at 10:51 pm #12162
yeah i like the not that contagious…..time to be a bit more careful nowMay 2, 2014 at 10:57 pm #12164
Personally I avoid flying because of how much of a hassle it has become (and I don’t have much money to spare for activities that require flying to them). And I avoid crowded places because I can’t stand being in crowds, if I have to deal with in for more than a few hours it will start to get on my nerves, and a few days of repeated large crowds can build up to a panic attack. But just just breaking it up so I don’t have to deal with crowds for more than a short time on more than 2 consecutive days and I am fine.

Don’t have a link but I just saw that they’re investigating 2 cases of MERS in Hong Kong.

The MERS virus is close to becoming a world wide infection. If this virus mixes with another flu virus which has happen many times in history then we are in trouble.May 3, 2014 at 6:13 pm #12228
If it has made it there the is H7N9 there with potential to cross breed for direct human to human airborne transmission… definitely a bad thing. Wonder who is asleep at the switch for stopping spread of this growing issue.May 3, 2014 at 7:59 pm #12245
With the immediacy of travel these days, it’s almost impossible to put the cork in the bottle. This case shows how wide the exposure can spread in a matter of 12 hours. Think how many people from different countries this individual could have exposed on any leg of his trip. I agree that if it is in Hong Kong and cross breeds with H7N9, we are in for a whole different situation.May 3, 2014 at 8:07 pm #12246

namelus, The cross breeding with any flu virus is a problem, everyone need to buy the masks and gloves now because if it happens everyone will be buying them and you will not find any! I have 60 in stock right now.May 3, 2014 at 8:22 pm #12251
I’m also going to get my hands on some of the disposable NBC suits. If it’s not this one, I suspect there is a good chance another one is percolating somewhere.
