The World Health Organization issued a global alert today for healthcare workers to watch for new cases of a SARS-like virus.
The agency classified this new virus as a Coronavirus a class which includes the common cold as well as SARS.
Healthcare workers are urged to watch for patients with unexplained respiratory illness combined with fever and cough.
So far there have been two cases reported.
One victim recently traveled to Saudi Arabia.
The virus discovery and its association with Saudi Arabia is raising concern about the annual Hajj Pilgrimmage to Mecca.
The world health organization says its working closely with Saudi Arabia to "support the country's health measures for all visitors" taking part in the Pilgrimmage.
A treatment for heart problems is having some success on men with erectile dysfunction.
Balloons and stents are usually used to unclog arteries, and now they're being used to treat ED.
First an angiogram is performed to identify the blockage.
Then a stent is placed in the affected artery.
The recovery process from this procedure is not as long as others.
Men should consult with a cardiologist if they think this procedure could help them.
As many as eighteen million men in the U.S. suffer with ED.
