New MERS case and death reported in Saudi Arabia

The Saudi Ministry of Health (MOH) reported a new MERS-CoV case today, bringing the country's total to 1,400, as well as a death in a previously reported MERS patient.

A 55-year-old Bangladeshi man living in Jeddah tested positive for MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus). He had primary exposure to the virus, the MOH said, adding that he's currently in stable condition.

The agency also noted that a patient in Najran died from MERS-CoV. The 82-year-old Saudi man had primary exposure to the virus and co-morbidities.

MERS-CoV was first detected in Saudi Arabia in 2012. To date the MOH reports 1,400 confirmed cases, 28 asymptomatic cases, and 595 deaths from the virus.
