Recently, I reblogged a popular article from Russian newspaper, Pravda,  highlighting  MERS-CoV killer virus. This prompted me to use Storify to publish another blog on what was trending. I noted that apart from CNN, with its strong Middle Eastern links plus Pravda, that mainstream media sources were not reporting on the  MERS-CoV killer virus. BUT, why?

My earlier blogs prompted some lively discussion on Twitter. I also searched Twitter on the #MERS tag. I was also recommended to check Goggle News for my sources. Here’s a link to the Google News search on the MERS-CoV virus:

https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&gl=us&tbm=nws&authuser=0&q=MERS-CoV+&oq=MERS-CoV+&gs_l=news-cc.1.0.43j43i53.15550.23519.0.26280.13.13.0.0.0.0.237.1837.0j12j1.13.0…0.0…1ac.1j2.WoPMvO9KBgk

I still question why the MERS-CoV killer virus is not receiving more mainstream media attention?

Let me turn this to an open question:

What are the risks of the  MERS-CoV killer virus becoming a pandemic?

Any thoughts?
