Product Description

Ref-SKU:

Middle East respiratory Syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) was isolated in June 2012 from a man with acute pneumonia and renal failure. MERS-CoV is a zoonotic virus, which means it is a virus that is transmitted between animals and people. Studies have shown that humans are infected through direct or indirect contact with infected dromedary camels. MERS-CoV has been identified in dromedaries in several countries, including Egypt, Oman, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia, and MERS-CoV specific antibodies (a finding that indicates an animal has previously been infected with MERS-CoV) have been identified in dromedaries in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia.

    Dear, EVAg

    We would like to purchase the 'Free of Charge access' method from the general purchasing method as recommended by EVAg and EMC.

    So we want to cancel the previous order (EVAg order no 2287) and proceed only with the new order (EVAg order no 2311).

    I did not find a way to cancel my order myself. Please cancel order no. 2287. And I ask you to proceed with order no 2311 only.

    Best regards,

    Yours sincerely,

    Sun-Je Woo
