More MERS in Saudi Arabia

The Saudi Arabia Ministry of Health (MOH) reported two new cases of MERS-CoV today and over the weekend.

On Nov 12, the MOH said a 51-year-old Saudi man from Tabuk was diagnosed as having Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV). He is currently in critical condition. Health officials said the man had direct contact with camels, a known risk factor for MERS.

Today the MOH said a 58-year-old Saudi woman from Afif is in stable condition after being diagnosed with the respiratory virus. Her case involves a primary source of the infection, which means she did not contract it from another person.

The new developments lift Saudi Arabia's MERS-CoV total to 1,479 cases, 617 of them fatal. Eight people are still being treated for their infections.
