MERS or Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome first diagnosed in Saudi Arabia in 2012 consists of fever, cough, shortness of breath. When the CDC mentions a new disease, chances are they have a vaccine in the works. This one MERS came from camels. Are you going to have a direct contact with a camel? Probably not.

How do you promote a vaccine for a disease that Americans are not likely to get? When the vaccine is ready, the outbreak will begin. Unknown untested vaccines need some someone to be the guinea pig and if there is an epidemic, the guinea pig is you.

The word pandemic definition used to“An influenza pandemic occurs when a new influenza virus appears against which the human population has no immunity, resulting in several simultaneous epidemics worldwide with enormous numbers of deaths and illness.”

The H1NI illness changed that to take out the words enormous death and illness,  so that even a mild disease could be called a pandemic based on the new definition according the World Healh Organization.


If there is an pandemic of MERS, don’t panic just yet. Remember when there was a pandemic of Ebola and Nancy Snyderman told us to panic? Yet, she snuck out to get some soup? She was fired for not following her own protocol. Don’t let them scare y0u. 

Eat some soup. You’ll be fine. Good sanitation and Better Hygiene. That’s what gets rid of disease. When you actually do quarantine those that are sick, it will the diseases die out on their own without fear.
