The virus has infected a total of 68 people so far, a Gulf News report said quoting Abdul Rahman Mohammad Al Owais.

He allayed concerns about the virus saying the Health Ministry continued surveillance for severe acute respiratory infections and carefully reviewed any unusual patterns, Al Owais told the Federal National Council (FNC).
