Three new cases of MERS confirmed in Saudi Arabia

The Saudi Arabian Ministry of Health (MOH) today confirmed three new cases of MERS-CoV, resulting in one death. The patient who died had direct contact with camels.

Two expatriate men, a 53-year-old from Riyadh and a 49-year-old from Jeddah, are in critical and stable condition after presenting with symptoms of MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus). The source of infection for both men is listed as primary, meaning they did not contract the respiratory virus from anyone else.

The Saudi man who died was 60 years old and from Mahayel Aseer.

The new cases raise Saudi Arabia's total from the disease to 1,505 since the first human infections were detected in 2012. So far 622 people have died from MERS. Eighteen people are still being treated for their recently announced illnesses.
