Saudi Arabia reports another MERS case in Hofuf outbreak

Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Health (MOH) today announced one new MERS-CoV infection, yet another case linked to an outbreak in the city of Hofuf, which has reported clusters linked to healthcare facilities and at least one family.

The patient is a 41-year-old Saudi man who is a household contact of an earlier reported case. He is not a healthcare worker and is hospitalized in stable condition.

Two day ago the MOH reported one additional MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus) death in a previously reported patient, a 61-year-old woman in Hofuf.

The latest illness and death lift Saudi Arabia's MERS-CoV totals to 1,039 cases and 460 fatalities. The MOH said four people are still being treated for their infections, and over the course of the outbreak 575 have recovered.
