  • MERS: The Next Pandemic?

    By Bruce Merchant, MD Science tells us that new viral mutations are occurring all the time. Many of these mutations are effectively neutral and are of little importance but, every now and again, a mutation will occur in a virus which gives it a major biological advantage.
