MERS sickens two more in Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Health (MOH) today announced two new MERS-CoV cases, including one in Riyadh, the city's fourth in the last 5 days.

Riyadh's new case involves a 76-year-old Saudi man who is not a health worker and is hospitalized in critical condition. So far investigators have found no links to suspected or confirmed MERS-CoV cases in community or hospital settings.

The other patient is a 60-year-old man from Dammam, in the east-central part of the country. The MOH said he is not a healthcare worker and is in stable condition. He had no known contact with a suspected or confirmed MERS-CoV case.

Clusters of household and healthcare-linked cases have been reported from the city of Hofuf over the past several weeks, but no new illnesses have been reported from that area in the past 7 days.

The new cases lift Saudi Arabia's MERS total to 1,044 cases, which include 460 deaths. So far 578 people have recovered from their infections, and 6 are still being treated
