A strange new illness that the media claims originated in the Middle East has struck dozens of hospital workers and potentially many others across Florida and throughout the Southeast. ClickOrlando.com reports that the MERS virus, also known as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, can kill up to one-third of people who contract it, and it has no known cure.

The disease is said to have originated in one man, a 44-year-old hospital worker from Saudi Arabia who was recently quarantined at Dr. Phillips Hospital in Orlando. The man tested positive for the disease after traveling to Orlando via London and a few other stops along the way. He reportedly began feeling ill in London, describing muscle aches and other symptoms, and was later evaluated.

Dr. Antonio Crespo, an infectious disease specialist at the hospital who is now treating the Saudi man, told the media that the patient took flu medicine along with an antibiotic that he brought with him from Saudi Arabia. When symptoms persisted, the man was tested for various diseases and came up positive for MERS, which has a very high mortality rate.
