MERS misses Mumbai man

Hat tip to @makoto_au_japon

According to a DNA report (a Mumbai-based, English broadsheet daily owned by Diligent media Corp in case you were wondering), the 40-year man from Mumbai is not positive for the MERS-CoV. He is also negative for "swine flu" (pick one)...what he is positive for is unclear but he is recovering.

Just another insight into how often we don't know what causes an acute respiratory infection ...and this is the case worldwide, not just in India.

Oh for a Tricorder.
