Saudi Arabia reports 1 new MERS case and 1 death

Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Health (MOH) today reported one new MERS-CoV case in the southeastern city of Jazan and also announced the death of a previously reported patient.

The MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus) case in Jazan involves a 55-year-old Saudi man who is hospitalized in stable condition. He is not a healthcare worker, and his history of camel exposure is currently unknown, the MOH said. His infection is listed as "primary," meaning he did not contract the disease from another person.

The agency also reported the death of a 78-year-old Saudi woman in Al-Kharj. She was not a healthcare worker and had an underlying medical condition, the MOH said.

Today's update brings the MERS total in Saudi Arabia since 2012 to 1,361 cases, including 581 deaths. Sixteen cases remain active.
