Saudi Arabia reports 1 new MERS case and 1 death

Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Health (MOH) today reported one new MERS-CoV case and the death of a previously reported patient, both in the north-central city of Buraydah.

The MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus) case involves a 56-year-old Saudi man who is hospitalized in critical condition. He is not a healthcare worker, and the MOH has listed his infection as associated with exposure to camels.

The fatality was in a 70-year-old Saudi man in Buraydah, the site of numerous recent healthcare-associated MERS cases. The man was not a healthcare worker and had an underlying medical condition.

Also included in the MOH report was the recovery from MERS of a 57-year-old foreign man in Buraydah. He is not a healthcare worker and had no preexisting disease.

Today's update brings the MERS-CoV total in Saudi Arabia since 2012 to 1,362 cases, including 582 deaths. Thirteen cases remain active.
