    There is absolutely no justification, or excuse, for the references to pets in, ““We do have these sporadic cases where there is no known exposure to known cases and we question where do they catch the virus,” [MERS researcher Dr. Thomas Briese] told BBC News…”In some cases there was animal contact or camel contact but in others not, so there is no clear definitive picture yet.”
