Dr. Pipes

I want to bring to your attention about a new and serious viral disease called Middle East Respiratory Syndrome or MERS and here is more information about it from the CDC

http://www.cdph.ca.gov/programs/cder/Pages/MERS-CoV.aspx

The virus is called the Coronavirus and it is not unlike SARS in being a severe lung infection and it can be deadly

There has been reported cases in Mecca and the source of the virus is infected camels

Would pious Muslims stop listening to their crazy Shiekhs and stop drinking camels urine which is used as a medicine for any and all illnesses? I hope so
