Saudi Arabia reports 3 new MERS cases, 1 fatal

Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Health (MOH) today reported three new MERS-CoV cases in separate cities, one of which was fatal.

The newly reported fatality involved a 73-year-old Saudi man in Riyadh. Potential exposure to MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus) in a healthcare setting is under investigation. He had no recent contact with animals or with MERS cases in the community.

The second patient is a 30-year-old male expatriate in Unayzah, which lies northwest of Riyadh in Al-Qassim region. He is in critical condition. He reported no recent contact with another MERS patient, but possible animal contact is being investigated.

The third patient is a 44-year-old male expatriate in Shaqra, a town midway between Unayzah and Riyadh in Riyadh region. He had recent camel exposure but no contact with other MERS patients.

None of the three patients was a healthcare worker (HCW) or had preexisting disease.

The MOH also reported the recoveries of two expatriates in Riyadh, a 50-year-old male HCW and a 76-year-old woman. A 34-year-old male expatriate HCW in Buraydah also recovered from MERS-CoV, the MOH said.

The country has now confirmed 936 MERS cases, including 402 deaths. It noted that 507 patients have recovered, while 27 are still receiving treatment.
