WHO: Assessment of potential risk factors of infection of Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) among health care personnel in a health care setting

Comprehensive investigations of health care personnel (HCP) who may have been exposed to patients infected with Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV), diagnosed either prospectively or retrospectively, are essential to understand the risk factors of infection within health care facilities. The risk factors identified from such investigations may provide insights into the potential modes of transmission to inform guidance and policy in infection control in health care facilities, and in directing national and international public health response.  {World Health Organization, 27 Jan}
