Saudi Arabia reports 2 new MERS cases, 1 fatal

Today Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Health (MOH) reported two new MERS-CoV cases, one of which was fatal, in Sakakah in the north. It also reported the death of a previously confirmed patient.

The first Sakakah case involves a 53-year-old Saudi man who has preexisting disease and had recent contact with animals. He had no contact with suspected or confirmed MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus) patients.

The Sakakah man who died was a 29-year-old expatriate who had no preexisting disease or contact with animals. The MOH, however, is investigating whether he had contact with other MERS patients. Neither man is a healthcare worker, and the MOH didn't say whether the cases are connected. Sakakah is in Al Jawf province.

The agency also confirmed the MERS-related death of a 70-year-old Saudi woman in Al-Kharj, a city not far from Riyadh in central Saudi Arabia. She was not a health worker but had preexisting disease. It appears her case was first reported by the MOH 2 days ago, when she was listed in critical condition.

The cases bring the Saudi MERS-CoV total to 804 cases and 342 deaths
