Saudi Arabia reports new MERS cases

The Saudi Arabian Ministry of Health (MOH) reported two new cases of Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) yesterday and today.

On Sunday, the MOH said a 52-year-old man from Bahrah was in critical condition after presenting with symptoms of MERS-CoV. The man had direct contact with camels. Though experts aren't clear on the route of transmission, exposure to camels (including drinking raw camel milk) is a known risk factor for MERS-CoV.

Today a 58-year-old expatriate woman from Najran was listed in stable condition after presenting with symptoms of MERS. She is listed as a primary source of infection, which means she did not contract the virus from someone else.

Confirmation of the latest infections raises Saudi Arabia's MERS-CoV total to 1,475 cases, 615 of them fatal. Seven people are still being treated for their infections, after a 51-year-old Saudi woman from Kharj made a recovery over the weekend.
