Saudi officials report 2 new MERS cases, 1 of them healthcare-related

Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Health (MOH) today reported two new MERS-CoV cases, one of which involved a healthcare worker.

The first MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus) case involved a 31-year-old foreign male healthcare worker in Riyadh. He is in stable condition, and his infection was healthcare-acquired, the MOH said. He had no contact with camels.

The second case involves a 24-year-old Saudi man from Hofuf who is asymptomatic. He is not a healthcare worker, and the probable source of his infection is contact with camels, the MOH said.

The country has now confirmed 1,376 cases since the outbreak began in 2012, including 587 deaths. Twelve patients are still being treated, the MOH said.
