Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) hotzone map gets a paint job..

A slightly updated MERS-CoV map adding in some camel detection sites in Africa and changing up the colours.

27 countries have been visited - 13 have had local transmission.

And there have been 2 humans in Kenya found to harbour antibodies to MERS-CoV. This helps address the question of why we hadn't seen human MERS cases in Africa despite countries harbouring MERS-CoV infected dromedary camels. The answer of course is, we hadn't looked.
