Face Masks Do Not Prevent MERS

So why were face masks not recommended a few months ago when the first cases were diagnosed with MERS? At this point, doctors did not know how contagious the virus could be nor was it understood how people without COVID-19 would be able to pass it on. Nor was it understood that some people do not have any symptoms and yet they carry the virus. MERS is believed to be transmitted through contact with the secretions of mucus membranes that line the respiratory tract. This is the same way that the SARS virus was transmitted, although with SARS, there was no evidence that it was being passed from person to person.

Face Mask

The first case of MERS was in a Saudi Arabian man who lived in Jeddah and was diagnosed while he was in Europe. He was traveling with a group of people who had recently visited a health facility where he was treated for his other ailments. During their time in the hospital, he showed no signs of having MERS and did not know that he had been infected until one of his companions fell ill with MERS and he called his physician for advice. His symptoms were cough with bloody mucus and fever.

The physician consulted his colleagues and found that the man’s case of MERS was highly unusual, although he did not know what caused it. They soon realized that he had MERS and sent him home. However, he returned to the hospital and was diagnosed with MERS again just two weeks later.

Although the SARS virus was a threat, MERS was not. In fact, even though MERS had never been seen before in humans, a patient who had it had a number of symptoms, including shortness of breath and cough. The patient’s doctor was unaware that she had MERS until a few days after her diagnosis. Even though she was diagnosed with MERS, she recovered completely. No deaths or serious complications of MERS have ever occurred, so it is not clear whether the disease causes death.

In the case of MERS, a face mask is recommended in order to prevent an infection from being transmitted to a person who has no symptoms. However, if one can get a symptom and then not wear a mask for a period of time, the infection will still be transmitted. Although the symptoms may be slight, they can be enough to cause complications, such as pneumonia, if they are untreated. This is why it is important to always wear a face mask during contact with the secretions of the lungs. even if you feel no symptoms of sickness or disease.

With that said, MERS is not an epidemic. No one knows when or where it will occur next, but it does not appear to be a major concern. And now we know that wearing a face mask is not necessary to stop the infection.
