Two new MERS patients in critical condition

The Saudi Arabian Ministry of Health (MOH) reported two new cases of MERS-CoV today in men from Buraydah, a city in the central part of the country.

Both men are Saudi nationals and described as having primary exposure to MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus), meaning they did not contract the virus from someone else. One man is 94 years old, and the other 61. Both remain in critical condition.

On Oct 31, another Saudi man from Buraydah was diagnosed as having MERS. He was also listed in critical condition and described as having primary exposure.

Confirmation of the latest infections raises Saudi Arabia's MERS-CoV total to 1,473 cases, 615 of them fatal. Eight people are still being treated for their infections.
