The article didn't mention if there is any known effective treatment for MERS. Any update on that? Because this is getting a little worrying. It really takes only a few people to start a pandemic in the age of international flight.

From the CDC:
Q: Is there a vaccine?
A: No, but CDC is discussing with partners the possibility of developing one.
Q: What are the treatments?
A: There are no specific treatments recommended for illnesses caused by MERS-CoV. Medical care is supportive and to help relieve symptoms.
