|World Health Organization poster describing risk of infection|
and how to identify when you might have MERS.
Granted, close contact can include spending time in the close, but not physically connected, "personal space" of a camel. But "close contact" is, in my opinion, one of those infectious disease terms that needs to be made more simple and clear. Like "aerosol" and "airborne", "close contact" gets a little lost when translated to the people who are at actual risk from infection.
