WHO has developed this rapid advice note to meet the urgent need for recommendations on the safe home care for patients with Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) infection presenting with mild symptoms and public health measures related to management of asymptomatic contacts. The document is informed by evidence-based guidelines published by WHO, including Infection prevention and control of epidemic- and pandemic-prone acute respiratory diseases in health care: WHO interim guidance (1), and a review of the current evidence on MERS-CoV infection. This document supersedes the original version, which was published in 2013. The updated recommendations have been reviewed by members of the WHO Global Infection Prevention and Control Network (GIPC Network) and other experts (see Acknowledgements).
