EMI published a timely report about MERS in one week from its submission

During the past month, an outbreak of Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) in South Korea resulted in 175 confirmed cases of MERS, including 27 related deaths. One of the MERS patients in South Korea traveled to China, raising a concern that this MERS outbreak may spread to other countries in Asia. On June 2, 2015, Jiang and colleagues from Fudan University in China, who have studied the peptide- and antibody-based therapeutics for MERS since 2012 when the first MERS case was reported inSaudi Arabia, submitted a Letter to the Editor to Emerging Microbes& Infections (EMI) calling for “Urgent development of effective therapeutic and prophylactic agents to control the emerging threat of Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS)”. After reading the manuscript, the editor-in-chief immediately sent it out for review and asked the reviewers to return their comments as soon as possible. On June 4, 2015, the authors revised their manuscript according to the reviewers’ critiques and suggestions and submitted the revised manuscript immediately. On June 9, 2015, this article was accepted for publication in EMI.
