SIGNS & SYMPTOMS OF #MERSCOV : http://on.fb.me/1sXmsrN
MERSCOV is a highly fatal respiratory illness presenting an influenza-like illness characterized by fever, cough, and often with diarrhea. Diagnosis of the disease is made through serology and/or DNA tests while treatment remains supportive.

There are still no travel restrictions to and from the Middle East countries. Filipino travelers to the Middle East countries are advised to avoid contact with persons with influenza-like illness and should observe frequent hand washing. They must report to any hospital if they become ill after 14 days from arrival and prevent visits to crowded places until symptoms disappear.

SIGNS & SYMPTOMS OF #EBOLA :http://on.fb.me/ZLpBjR
