MERS sickens one, kills another in Saudi Arabia

For the second day in a row, Saudi Arabia's ministry of health (MOH) reported a new MERS-CoV case from Kharj. The case involved a 68-year-old Saudi man who had primary exposure to the virus, meaning he did not contract it from another patient.

The man is hospitalized in critical condition. The patient reported from the same city yesterday is a 53-year-old man who had contact with camels. Kharj is located in the central part of the country.

In its update today on Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV), the MOH also reported another death from the disease involving a previously announced patient, a 72-year-old Saudi man from Riyadh who had underlying health conditions.

The new developments lift Saudi Arabia's MERS-CoV total to 1,477 cases, 617 of them fatal. Eight people are still being treated for their infections.
