Isolation of a Novel Coronavirus from a Man with Pneumonia in Saudi Arabia
Zaki, A.M., van Boheemen, S., Bestebroer, T.M., et al. (2012). Isolation of a Novel Coronavirus from a Man with Pneumonia in Saudi Arabia. New England Journal of Medicine. 367(19):1814-20.
The authors describe a previously unknown coronavirus (later known as MERS-CoV) isolated from the sputum of a 60-year-old man who presented with acute pneumonia with a fatal outcome in Saudi Arabia, remarkably similar to that of the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) outbreak in 2003.
