Scientists have found antibodies to the Middle East respiratory syndrome cornonavirus (MERS-CoV) in blood samples taken from about 50 dromedary camels
living in Oman in the Arabian Peninsula.

Sequences from the sample from camel C7 most closely matched sequences obtained from a human in Hafar Al-Batin in 2013; sequences from camel C9 most closely matched sequences obtained from a human in Riyadh in 2014; and the sequence from camel C23 was identical to a sequence obtained from a dromedary camel
in an unidentified region of Saudi Arabia in 2014 (Figure 2).
They brought in a dromedary camel
mannequin from the Netherlands, but it was so wrong it had to be taken apart and put back together.

Isolation of MERS coronavirus from a dromedary camel
, Qatar, 2014.
MERS-CoV isolation and subsequent full genome sequencing directly linked a dromedary camel
and a fatal MERS-CoV case in a person in Saudi Arabia (20,21).
Because virus transmission might be influenced by population density, we attempted to correlate seroprevalence with dromedary camel
population density across different regions.
These data demonstrate that the MERS-CoV obtained from a dromedary camel
is able to replicate in human cells and uses DPP4 as entry receptor, similar to MERS-CoV isolates obtained from human patients (15).

Here, we investigate the stability of MERS-CoV in dromedary camel
milk, goat milk, and cow milk at different temperatures.
