America's first confirmed MERS patient is in stable condition at an Indiana hospital.

Federal health officials say while the disease can be deadly, the case in Indiana poses a very low risk to the public.

It involves one health care worker who was diagnosed after showing symptoms of the illness after returning from a trip to Saudi Arabia.

The patient is in isolation at Community Hospital in Munster.
