The situation in the world regarding coronaviruses and the measures taken to prevent their delivery to Uzbekistan.

Coronaviruses are the large family of viruses that can cause illnesses from the common cold to severe acute respiratory syndrome.


Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) is viral respiratory disease caused by new coronavirus (MERS-CoV) that was first diagnosed in Saudi Arabia in 2012.

The registered number of diseases has been considerably increasing since April, compared with the previous six months. This is probably due to the activation of factors of infection transmission in spring and summer period. All cases occurred either among the people who returned from the Middle East, or those cared for patients with MERS-CoV. The majority of newly diagnosed patients reported about visiting the habitats of camels, some of them had direct contact with animals or used the meat and milk of camels. The majority of secondary infections (from human) have been among health workers, other cases of infection have occurred in families and several cases - in the workplace.


In the period from April 2012 to June 5th , 2015 1185 laboratory-confirmed cases of MERS-CoV had been identified in 23 countries.
All cases of MERS-CoV had direct or indirect connection with the countries of the Middle East. The cases that occurred outside the Middle East were brought from Saudi Arabia or the United Arab Emirates.

In the second half May 2015, the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Korea informed about the first cases of infection with MERS-CoV. For the last 2 weeks there has been the rapid distribution of MERS-CoV. According to data on June 5th, 2015 in the Republic of Korea there were 41 sick people, of whom 4 patients died.

Considering the unfavorable epidemic situation in the world regarding MERS-CoV, Uzbekistan takes measures to prevent the delivery and distribution of the virus in the country. In all international airports the medical monitoring of arriving passengers is arranged to identify the patients with  fever using modern equipment. The passengers arriving from the Middle East and the Republic of Korea are checked with particular care.
In the country the epidemiological surveillance is conducted for cases of acute respiratory infections and pneumonia. For health workers the guidelines for the detection and treatment of patients with suspected MERS-CoV have been developed. In all infectious hospitals the conditions were arranged for hospitalization and treatment of such patients in safe environment. For persons travelling to the countries of the Middle East the memo has been developed on observance of measures personal safety measures.

 

Due to the measures taken in the country the epidemic welfare is maintained.
