Saudi Arabia reports 2 more MERS cases

The Saudi Arabia Ministry of Health (MOH) said today there were two new cases of MERS-CoV in that country, one linked to camel exposure.

A 45 year-old Saudi man from Al Aflaj is in stable condition after presenting with symptoms of MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus). The MOH said the man had direct exposure to camels, a known risk factor for MERS. Though the route of transmission is unknown, contact with camels, including drinking raw camel milk, can put people at risk.

A 29-year-old Saudi woman from Hafar Al Batin is also in stable condition after being diagnosed with MERS. The woman was symptomatic, and her case is listed as primary, meaning she had no known exposure to other MERS patients.

The new cases raise Saudi Arabia's MERS-CoV total to 1,481 cases, 617 of them fatal. Ten people are still being treated for their infections.
