Three more MERS cases reported in Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia late yesterday announced three more MERS cases in three cities, raising the total over the past week to six cases.

All three cases are listed as primary, meaning there are no known links to other MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus) cases, the Saudi Ministry of Health (MOH) said. None of the patients work in healthcare or had exposure to camels.

The MOH listed the patients as:

    A 50-year-old Saudi man from the southwestern city of Khamis Mushait, listed in critical condition
    An 82-year-old Saudi man from the southern city of Najran, also in critical condition (the report came 2 days after the news of MERS in a 63-year-old Najran woman)
    A 42-year-old Saudi woman who lives in Riyadh and is in stable condition (her case is the third reported in Riyadh since Dec 22)

The MOH update also noted the recovery of three other patients, two in Riyadh and one in Hofuf, whose cases were announced earlier.

With the latest developments, Saudi Arabia's overall tally of MERS cases has reached 1,518, which includes 631 deaths and 12 patients still getting treatment.
