Quote:A Frenchman has died after contracting a SARS-like virus that has killed 22 of its 44 known victims, the Associated Press reported.

The 65-year-old man, whose name has not been made public, was hospitalized with respiratory symptoms after a trip to Dubai in mid-April. His hospital roommate also tested positive for the illness, according to the AP.

The new virus, dubbed MERS-CoV for Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus, was first identified in September 2012 following the infections of a Qatari man in a British hospital and a woman who died in Saudi Arabia. Like its cousin SARS, severe acute respiratory syndrome, it can cause pneumonia and organ failure. But unlike SARS, which a decade ago sickened more than 8,000 people and killed 775, it doesn't appear to spread as easily from person to person.

To put that into perspective:

The side effects from prescribed medication is responsible for at least 18,000 deaths each year in France
Quote:Medication causes more deaths per year in France than road accidents and suicides combined, according to expert testimony on Monday at the high-profile trial of a leading drug company boss, implicated in the deaths of hundreds of people.
