No Cases of MERS in Iran

No cases of Coronavirus, known as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome or MERS, have been reported in Iran so far, said Dr. Mohammad Mehdi Gouya, director of the Center for Disease Control at the Health Ministry.
“The three recent deaths reported in the city of Rafsanjan, Kerman Province, were due to H1N1 flu which is common during the fall season, and not MERS,” he said, ISNA reported.
He was allaying public concerns over the MERS virus, as the large number of hajj pilgrims returned from Saudi Arabia, where over 500 people have died since the outbreak of the disease in June 2012.
“If MERS is suspected, tests will be taken and results made public within 24 hours,” Gouya assured.
