Oman, Saudi Arabia report MERS cases

Officials have announced a case of MERS-CoV in Oman—a fatal one—and in Saudi Arabia.

The case of MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus) in Oman was its first in almost a year and its third overall, Arab News reported today. All cases have been fatal. The country's health ministry provided no further details.

The case in Saudi Arabia involves an 80-year-old Saudi man in Riyadh, according to an update today from the country's Ministry of Health (MOH). He has preexisting disease, is not a healthcare worker (HCW), and is listed in critical condition. He had no recent contact with animals or other MERS patients.

Saudi Arabia has now confirmed 831 MERS-CoV cases, including 358 deaths. Six of those cases were reported this year.
