Saudi Arabia Must Embrace Transparency, Cooperation In MERS Outbreak

Washington Post: Saudi Arabia’s MERS virus outbreak demands transparency
“…Major uncertainties about the MERS virus persist, including how it spreads, whether it has efficiently begun human-to-human transmission and whether its genetic makeup has evolved. The Saudis must throw open their doors to international scientific inquiry. … For everyone’s safety and well-being, there must be a move to clarity, cooperation and transparency. Even if MERS does not reach pandemic scale, it must be confronted as if it could” (4/24).
