A second case of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, or MERS, in the U-S has been confirmed.
 The CDC is investigating the newest case in Florida.
 The first was reported earlier this month in Indiana.
 That patient is an American Health care provider who was working in Saudi Arabia -- and is said to be recovering well.
 CDC scientists do not know exactly how MERS spreads, but they do not believe it's from casual contact.
