New MERS paper

Our paper on the reproductive number and case fatality rate associated with the Spring 2014 MERS outbreak in Saudi Arabia was published last week! It’s open access and can be found here via PLOS Outbreaks.

The last couple of months have been an incredible demonstration of how social media can enable collaboration among researchers in the emerging infectious disease space. This paper is a wonderful example of just that.

Caitlin, David, and Eric were wonderful colleagues and I’m looking forward to working with them again in the near future. Thanks for introducing us, Twitter!
