SARS-like virus MERS-CoV threatens globally with deadly results:
Like a ticking time bomb, the World Health Organization (WHO) warns of a deadly new coronavirus known as Middle East Respiratory Symptom Coronavirus, or MERS-CoV, that has reared its ugly head killing approximately 50 percent of its known victims thus far. There’s no evidence showing from where the virus derives and no information whether it originates in any particular animal, according to WHO.

HIV vaccine infects 41 volunteers, vaccine trials canceled:
Yet another “experimental” vaccine for HIV has proven to be even more dangerous than the virus itself. At least 40 men participating in a taxpayer-funded government study entitled “HVTN 505 clinical trial,” which began in 2009, were recently found to have contracted HIV from the vaccine itself, prompting an immediate end to the deadly trial.
Hajj and Umrah, 2013-The annual Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca, Saudi Arabia, is among the largest mass gatherings in the world. This year, it will take place from approximately October 13 to 18. Hajj draws about 3 million Muslims from around the world, and more than 11,000 Americans make the pilgrimage each year. Umrah is a similar pilgrimage that can be undertaken at any time of the year, but it is likely to be more crowded during the month of Ramadan (approximately July 9 to August 7, 2013) than at other times of the year. Because of the crowds, mass gatherings such as Hajj and Umrah are associated with unique health risks.
