New MERS cases in Saudi Arabia, Austria

Yesterday the Saudi Arabia Ministry of Health (MOH) said there was a new case of MERS in the city of Arar, while Australian officials reported a case in a tourist from Saudi Arabia.

A 56-year-old man is in stable condition after presenting with symptoms of MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus). He had direct contact with camels, prompting the MOH to describe him as a primary source of the disease. Contact with camels has been the main source of recent infections in the country, which has seen a slowdown of new cases this summer.

Saudi Arabia's MERS case count has now reached 1,451, including 610 deaths, and 2 patients are still being treated, according to the MOH.

In related news, today the Austrian Ministry of Health reported that a 67-year-old Saudi tourist was hospitalized and diagnosed as having MERS while visiting Salzburg, Outbreak News Today reported today. This is the second case of imported MERS in Austria; the first occurred in 2014.
