Saudi MOH: 2 new MERS cases, 3 deaths

The Saudi Arabian Ministry of Health (MOH) reported two new cases of MERS and three deaths in previously reported patients in recent days. Both of the new cases were linked to camel contact.

A 63-year-old Saudi man from Badr was diagnosed as having MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus) infection on Mar 16. He is in stable condition, and had direct contact with camels. On the same day, the MOH said that a 67-year-old Riyadh man had passed away from the disease. He had preexisting disease.

On Mar 17, the MOH said a 54-year-old Saudi man in Jeddah had died from MERS. Finally, on Mar 18 a 20-year-old expatriate man in Hafar Al Batin died from MERS after having direct contact with camels.

So far Saudi Arabia has reported 1,580 MERS-CoV cases, 659 of them fatal, since the virus was first detected in humans in 2012. Ten people are still being treated for their infections, the MOH said.
