The OIE says there is little evidence of a link between camels and MERS-CoV cases.
Much is unknown: the animal source, how the virus jumps to or among people, clinical variables, etc.
The WHO today confirmed the first two MERS cases in Kuwait, and Spain may have a new case.
Besides new Saudi cases, a Qatar man has died, and debate continues on the role of camels in transmission.
