Munster, Ind. Federal and state health officials have scheduled a news conference to discuss their response to the illness of a man in northwestern Indiana who's the first case of an American infected with a mysterious virus from the Middle East.

Health agencies said the patient was in good condition Sunday at a Munster hospital.

Officials say the man fell ill with Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, or MERS, after flying to the U.S. last month from Saudi Arabia, where he was a health care worker.

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence is to join health officials for the news conference in Munster.
