Did I have MERS ?
With all this Coronavirus talk it made me think back to when I was in Afghanistan. I had the absolute worst respiratory infection I ever had in my life. Every cough felt like fire and was so painful. Never reported it. Is it possible I am a MERS survivor lol

I highly doubt it. MERS is a very serious infection and has a mortality rate of about 30%. So I think it’s highly unlikely that you had it and survived without being diagnosed or treated.

MERS is not endemic to Afghanistan. It was more likely whooping cough, which is a bacterial infection and is endemic to the area.Source(s): Respiratory therapist (B.S., RRT, RPFT) Former USAF flight medic Working on my master's in nursing
