The second MERS case, confirmed in the U.S. has some key things in common with the first.

FOX News Radio's Eben Brown has the story from Miami:

This new patient, confirmed to be infected with the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus, is from Saudi Arabia-- just like the one hospitalized a week or so ago in Indiana. This new patient is under isolation at an Orlando, Florida hospital.

Dr. Frieden: "On May 1st, the patient traveled from Saudi Arabia to Florida. On May 8th, the patient went to the emergency department of a Florida hospital and was admitted on the same day."

Doctor Tom Frieden with the Centers for Disease Control. And just like the first patient, this new patient is a healthcare worker in Saudi Arabia.
