Officials confirm 2 MERS cases in Saudi Arabia, 1 death

The Saudi Arabian Ministry of Health (MOH) reported two new MERS cases and one death in the past few days.

On Feb 3 the MOH reported that a 54-year-old male expatriate in Najran was in stable condition after presenting with symptoms of MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus) infection. The source of his infection is listed as primary, meaning he did not contract the disease from another person. The same day, the MOH said a 68-year-old man in Taif had died from the respiratory infection. He had preexisting illness.

Today the MOH said a 45-year-old male expatriate in Medina was also in stable condition after being diagnosed as having MERS. His infection is also listed as "primary."

The new cases raise Saudi Arabia's MERS-CoV total to 1,552 infections, including 644 deaths. Nine people are still in treatment or monitoring.
