Denver airport signs warn travelers of MERS virus
Travelers passing through Denver International Airport are being warned about the danger of the MERS virus.
The airport says the signs were posted Wednesday at all of its screening areas at the direction of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The signs list the symptoms of the virus and ask anyone who gets sick within 14 days of traveling to the Arabian peninsula to contact their doctor and tell the doctor where they have been.
MERS, or Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, is a respiratory illness that begins with flu-like fever and cough but can lead to shortness of breath, pneumonia and death.
