Saudi MERS cases, deaths, recoveries increase by 1 each

A 61-year-old man from the Najran province of Saudi Arabia has become the country's 819th MERS-CoV case-patient, according to an update today from Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Health (MOH).

The man, a non–healthcare worker (HCW) who is in critical condition, had preexisting disease as well as animal exposure, considered to be a risk factor for MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus). He had no known contact with MERS-CoV patients in the community, and whether he has had contact with such patients in the healthcare setting is under investigation.

Over the weekend, the MOH announced the death from MERS-CoV of a previously reported 58-year-old male case-patient in the city of Taif, hard hit recently by the disease. He was not an HCW but did have preexisting disease. No other details were given.

Also over the weekend, the MOH reported the recovery from MERS of a previously reported 43-year-old expatriate in the city of Sakakah in the northwestern province of Al-Jawf. He was not an HCW and had no preexisting disease.

The total case count since June 2012 now stands at 819, with 352 deaths, 459 recoveries, and 8 active cases.
