International SOS and CSO Roundtable to host Webinar Update on What Organizations Need to Know About MERS-CoV

May 20, 2014, 12:23 ET from International SOS

TREVOSE, Pa., May 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- International SOS, the world's leading medical and security services company, and ASIS International's CSO Roundtable, a membership group of the senior-most security executives in the world's largest companies, will host a complimentary Webinar, MERS-CoV – What Organizations Need to Know, looking at the latest on the cases as well as the "H" series of viruses.

An unprecedented surge in cases of MERS-CoV (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus) have been confirmed in the Arabian Peninsula since April 2014 and now there are cases in the United States. This disease, which doesn't respect borders, kills one-third of those it infects. How serious is the threat in the US, Canada and elsewhere? What can employers and organizations do to manage this virus?

International SOS medical experts invite you to learn about the status of MERS-CoV in the US and globally; the status of new and evolving influenza viruses; how organizations can prepare for global health threats; and tips on how best to update pandemic, crisis or infectious disease plans.

Our experts will also discuss the importance of factoring MERS-CoV and the H's (H1N1, H5N1, etc.) into your plans - and how doing so can be beneficial.
