Egypt has reported its first case of the potentially fatal Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) virus, first detected in Saudi Arabia in 2012.
A 27-year-old man who recently arrived from Saudi Arabia had tested positive for the virus and is being treated in a Cairo hospital.
MERS, which is related to SARS, has killed at least 92 people in Saudi Arabia.
