Saudi Arabia reports 4 MERS-CoV cases, 1 death

Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Health (MOH) reported four new MERS cases and one death in the past 2 days, bringing the country's total to 855 cases since June 2012. The country has confirmed 10 cases in the past 5 days.

The MOH reported three cases of MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus) today in Saudi men who have underlying conditions and are not healthcare workers. A 49-year-old man from Dammam and a 57-year-old man from Riyadh are both hospitalized in critical condition. Neither man had recent exposure to animals or to MERS cases in clinical or community settings.

The third case-patient is a 62-year-old man from Riyadh who is in stable condition. The man did not have contact with MERS-CoV cases in clinical or community settings, but he does have a history of animal exposure.

Yesterday, the MOH reported a MERS case in a 34-year-old female expatriate living in Riyadh. She has no underlying medical condition and is not a healthcare worker. She also had no exposure to animals or to MERS patients in clinical or community settings. The woman is hospitalized in stable condition.

The MOH today also noted the MERS-related death of a 56-year-old woman from Al-Kharj whose case was previously reported. She had an underlying medical condition and was not a healthcare worker.

Fourteen MERS-CoV cases remain active in Saudi Arabia, 475 people have recovered, and 366 have died.
