Caption: A domesticated baby camel at rest beneath its mother. Juvenile camels have been identified as a key source and reservoir of the middle east respiratory syndrome MERS-CoV. In a study more than 90% of animals had been infected by two years old and shed active viruses more than adults. Delaying the age calves are taken from mothers may reduce the chance of human infection the study in the Journal of Emerging Infectious Diseases reported.
