Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) is a viral respiratory disease caused by a coronavirus transmitted to humans by infected dromedary camels. It is a zoonotic virus transmitted between animals and people, and it is contactable through direct or indirect contact with infected animals. The very first case remained isolated in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) in 2012, and after that, MERS-covid exhibited outbreaks in several regions of the world. In this communication, we propose a mathematical model to analyze the transmission rate of this virus and remedial measures to reduce the transmission rate by applying the Homotopy Perturbation Method.
