Saudi MOH: New case of MERS

Over the weekend, Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Health (MOH) reported one new case of MERS-CoV. The patient is in critical condition.

A 41-year-old Saudi man from Buraydah was diagnosed as having MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus) on Oct 29. The man is listed as having primary exposure, which means he did not contract the virus from another patient.

Confirmation of the latest case lifts Saudi Arabia's MERS-CoV total to 1,470 cases, 615 of them fatal. Seven people are still being treated for their infections.

WHO details 7 recent Saudi MERS cases

The World Health Organization (WHO) today detailed seven cases of MERS-CoV reported by the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Health (MOH) between Sep 16 and Oct 10. Three of the cases are linked to direct or indirect contact with camels, including drinking raw camel milk. The sources of exposure are being investigated in the remaining four cases.

The four cases with unknown exposure were all in men. A 28-year-old male expatriate in Hail, and a 43-year-old male expatriate in Riyadh, both with no known risk facts for MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus) remain hospitalized in stable condition. They were diagnosed on Oct 8 and Sep 22, respectively, and have no co-morbidities. A 52-year-old Saudi man from Wadi ad-Dawasir is in critical condition after being hospitalized on Sep 19. He had co-morbidities. Finally a 70-year-old Saudi from Hail died on Sep 27 after being admitted to the hospital on Sep 13.

A 51-year-old Saudi woman from Al Kharj was diagnosed as having MERS on Sep 29. She had contact with camels in the 2 weeks prior to symptom onset and remains in critical condition in an intensive care unit. Both a 78-year-old Saudi woman from Sakakah and 50 year-old man from Shaqra remain in stable condition with MERS. Both had a history of drinking raw camel milk.

The update does not include a group of three recently reported healthcare-related cases in Arar, among other cases.
