In tonight’s Eyewitness In-Depth, we’re talking more about Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, better known as the MERS virus.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed the first case of the virus in the U.S. last week, a doctor from Saudi Arabia who has been hospitalized in Munster, Indiana near Chicago.

Brad Byrd is joined tonight by Dr. Payal Patel-Dovlatabadi, the Director of Public Health at the University of Evansville, to discuss some important facts about MERS.
