Second U.S. Case of MERS Confirmed
(CNN) — There is a second confirmed case of MERS imported into the United States, the CDC announced Monday.
Officials from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Florida Department of Health are investigating.
Saudi Arabia was been the center of an outbreak of MERS, which surfaced two years ago. At least 400 cases have been reported, and more than 100 people have died. The virus has been found in camels, but officials don’t know how it is spreading to humans.
The first case of the deadly virus in the U.S. was discovered in a health care worker in Indiana earlier this month.
