Saudi Arabia reports 3 recent MERS cases

Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Health (MOH) reported three new MERS-CoV cases over the weekend, an uptick after few new cases were reported last week. At least one patient is linked to an ongoing outbreak at King Khalid University Hospital in Riyadh.

On Jun 25 a 33-year-old woman, a healthcare worker at the hospital, was diagnosed as having MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus). The expatriate was symptomatic and is in stable condition.

Yesterday the MOH reported two Saudi men as having MERS. A 62-year-old man from Riyadh is a household contact of a primary patient. He was asymptomatic and is in stable condition. The other case involves a 28-year-old man from Najran, also a household contact of a primary patient. He presented with symptoms and is also in stable condition. This is the third new case in Najran in the past 2 weeks.

The developments raise Saudi Arabia's MERS-CoV total cases since 2012 to 1,402, including 596 deaths. Fifteen patients are currently being treated for their infections
