Saudi Arabia reports three new MERS cases

Saudi Arabian health officials have reported three new MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus) infections in recent days, two of them involving exposure to camels. All three patients have symptoms and are in stable condition, officials said.

One patient is a 78-year-old Saudi man in Riyadh who had indirect contact with camels, the Saudi Ministry of Health (MOH) announced Dec 22. Yesterday the MOH announced a case in another Riyadh man, a 44-year-old Saudi, saying he had no exposure to other MERS-CoV patients and that the source of the virus is under investigation.

The other case, announced Dec 25, is in a 63-year-old Saudi woman in the southern city of Najran who also had indirect contact with camels, according to the MOH. None of the three patients are healthcare workers, officials said.

The three cases raised Saudi Arabia's cumulative MERS count since 2012 to 1,515 cases, including 631 deaths and 12 patients still being treated.
