MERS-CoV infects 5 more in Saudi Arabia, 1 fatally

In updates yesterday and today, Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Health (MOH) announced five new MERS-CoV cases, one of them fatal.

Yesterday the MOH reported four new MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus) cases, two in Riyadh and a pair from Buraydah, located about 200 miles northwest of Riyadh in the north central part of the country.

One of the Riyadh patients is a 58-year-old man who has an asymptomatic infection and is listed as a household contact of an earlier case. The other three had primary exposure to the virus, meaning they aren't thought to have contracted their infections from another patient. They are a 56-year-old foreign man in Riyadh who is in critical condition, an 87-year-Saudi woman from Buraydah who is listed as stable, and an 88-year-old Saudi woman from Buraydah who died.

Today the MOH reported an additional MERS patient in Buraydah, a 70-year-old Saudi woman who is in stable condition and has a primary infection source.

The new cases boost Saudi Arabia's MERS-CoV total to 1,527, including 636 deaths. Eleven people are still being treated.
