Abstract: We screened faecal specimens of 4,758 bats from Ghana and 272 bats from four European countries for betacoronaviruses. Viruses related to the novel human betacoronavirus MERS-CoV (formerly known as hCoV-EMC/2012) were detected in 46 (24.9%) of 185 Nycteris spp and 40 (14.7%) of 272 Pipistrellus spp. Their genetic relatedness indicate that MERS-CoV originated from bats.
