Officials report 3 new MERS cases and 3 deaths in Saudi Arabia

Over the New Year's weekend, Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Health (MOH) reported three new MERS-CoV cases and three deaths, two of them in previously reported patients. Two of the three new cases had direct contact with camels.

On Dec 31, a 49-year-old Saudi male from Al Khurma was diagnosed as having Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV). The man had direct contact with camels, a known risk factor for contracting the virus. He is in stable condition. On Jan 1, a 44-year-old Saudi man from Riyadh died from the respiratory illness.

Yesterday a 70-year-old Saudi man from Medina was diagnosed as having MERS-CoV. He is in stable condition and had contact with camels. Also yesterday, a 63-year-old Saudi woman from Buraidah was diagnosed as having MERS-CoV and also listed as deceased from the disease. And a 50-year-old Saudi man from Khamis Mushait also died.

The new infections raise Saudi Arabia's MERS-CoV total to 1,522. Nine patients are still being treated or monitored for their infections.
