'No excuse for lack of MERS vaccine'
19 July 2015
Professor Adrian Hill points out the need for a vaccine for the MERS virus that first emerged in humans three years ago. He said: ‘The question is: How long are we going to wait around and just follow these outbreaks before we get serious about making vaccines? There is no sign of MERS going away. It's been around since 2012. And there is really clear evidence now of human-to-human transmission.’
