MERS-CoV – What Organizations Need to Know

Webinar | Wednesday, May 21, 2014 2:00p.m. EST


An unprecedented surge in cases of MERS-CoV (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus) have been confirmed in the Arabian Peninsula since April 2014 and now there are cases in the United States. This disease, which doesn’t respect borders, kills one-third of those it infects.

How serious is the threat in the US, Canada and elsewhere? What can employers and organizations do to manage this virus?
International SOS medical experts invite you to learn about:
  • The status of MERS-CoV in the US and globally;
  • The status of new and evolving influenza viruses that need attention;
  • How organizations are preparing for these global health threats;
  • Tips on how best to update your pandemic, crisis or infectious disease plans.
Our experts will discuss the importance of factoring MERS-CoV and the H’s (H1N1, H5N1, etc.) into your plans and how doing so can be beneficial.
