​According to the limited information available so far, there is no accurate scientific evidence identifying the way through which the virus can be transmitted from one person to another. But, it is likely to be similar to the other kinds of Coronavirus. MOH is making every effort, in collaboration with its partners in the international organizations, including the WHO, to learn more about ways of transmission, including through animals.

The Ways of Human-to-Human MERS-CoV Transmission Include the Following: 
  • Direct transmission through droplets produced during coughing or sneezing.
  • Indirect transmission through touching surfaces and devices contaminated with
    the virus, and then touching the mouth, nose or eyes.
  • Direct contact with infected patients.
  • Put on face-masks only if you are sick or visiting sick patients.
