Saudi officials report MERS in 2 healthcare workers

Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Health (MOH) today announced two new MERS-CoV illnesses, both of them involving expat women working as healthcare workers in Aseer, located in the southwestern corner of the country.

Their ages are 30 and 41, and both are asymptomatic after contracting Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) in the healthcare setting. The country's most recent case from Aseer, announced by the MOH on Dec 8, involved a 60-year-old Saudi man who had direct contact with camels and died from his infection.

The pair of new infections raise Saudi Arabia's MERS-CoV total to 1,519. Twelve people are still in treatment or monitoring.
