Four more Riyadh cases, another death

The latest lab-confirmed MERS-CoV infections in Saudi Arabia all occurred in Riyadh and all of the patients had contact with a suspected or confirmed case-patient in the community or the hospital setting. All four are Saudi men, and they range in age from 45 to 99 years.

The announcement raises the number of illnesses reported from Riyadh since Aug 1 to 24. At least one family cluster has been reported in the community, and some of the illnesses reflect health facility–related spread.

All four patients are hospitalized in critical condition, and none are healthcare workers.

The fatality occurred in an earlier announced case, a 73-year-old woman from Riyadh who had underlying medical conditions.

One more patient recovered from her MERS-CoV infections, lifting the number who have recovered so far to 587. Twenty people are still being treated, and two are in home isolation.

The four new cases increase Saudi Arabia's overall total from the disease to 1,082 cases, 473 of them fatal.
