The quiet start of the football holiday in Qatar was overshadowed by warnings from local authorities. They strongly warned all fans and visitors to avoid any contact with the almost ubiquitous camels whenever possible. An animal nicknamed the “ship of the desert” can transmit a dangerous form of the coronavirus that causes MERS disease.

The disease, which first appeared in 2012 in neighboring Saudi Arabia, has symptoms very similar to the infamous Covid-19. “General symptoms of MERS include fever, cough, and shortness of breath.” describes the website of the World Health Organization (WHO). In extreme cases, a severe course can lead to respiratory failure and subsequent death.

Although the disease has been known for some time, fortunately it has not yet spread to other areas. The incidence is localized mainly on the Arabian Peninsula, and in total cases of this disease have been registered in 27 countries of the world. “About 80 percent of the cases were from Saudi Arabia, mostly from contact with infected camels or people in hospitals,” noted virologist Vincent Enuf.
