2 new MERS cases, 1 death, 1 recovery in Saudi Arabia

Two new cases, one recovery, and one death from MERS-CoV, all in Riyadh, have been announced by Saudi Arabia's ministry of health (MOH) in the past 2 days, bringing the total cases to 837 since June 2012.

The new case-patients are a 62-year-old man and a 67-year-old man. Neither is a healthcare worker, but both had preexisting disease. Both are in stable condition. Neither has known animal exposure or exposure to suspected or confirmed MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus) patients in the community; the older man's potential exposure to case-patients in the healthcare setting is under investigation.

The death occurred in a 25-year-old woman whose case had been reported earlier. She was not a healthcare worker and had preexisting disease. This brings the total deaths since June 2012 to 361.

The recovered patient is a 69-year-old man who was not a healthcare worker and had preexisting disease. His case brings to 471 the number of people who have recovered, leaving 5 active cases.
