Saudi Arabia reports 3 new MERS cases, 2 deaths

Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Health (MOH) reported 1 new MERS-CoV case today and 2 cases on Jan 3, bringing the country's total to 828 cases.

The case-patient reported today is a 69-year-old Saudi man from Najran who is in stable condition. He has an underlying medical condition and is not a healthcare worker (HCW). The man did not have exposure to animals or contact with MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus) patients in clinical or community settings.

The first case reported on Jan 3 occurred in a 76-year-old Saudi man from Taif who had exposure to animals. He is not an HCW and had no contact with MERS patients in clinical or community settings. He has an underlying medical condition and is hospitalized in critical condition.

The second case-patient reported on Jan 3 is a 45-year-old Saudi man from Dammam who is in stable condition. He is not an HCW and had no contact with MERS-CoV cases in clinical or community settings. The man has no pre-existing disease, and the MOH is investigating whether he may have been exposed to animals.

The MOH reported today that a 70-year-old male expatriate from Dammam had died of MERS-CoV. The man had an underlying medical condition and was not an HCW. The MOH also reported the death of an 84-year-old Saudi man from Najran on Jan 1. The man was not an HCW and had no preexisting disease.

Yesterday, the MOH reported that a 70-year-old Saudi man from Quriat had recovered from MERS. The man had an underlying medical condition and was not an HCW.

Five Saudi MERS cases remain active, 466 people have recovered, and 357 people have died, the MOH said.
