Saudi Arabia reports 5 new MERS cases

Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Health (MOH) has reported five new MERS-CoV cases from Oct 25 to today and two deaths on Oct 25, bringing the country's total to 777 cases and 331 deaths since June 2012. One of the deaths occurred in a newly reported case.

The new case on Oct 25 was in a 75-year-old man from Taif, who had contact with suspected or confirmed cases in hospitals or clinics, although he was not a healthcare worker, the MOH said.

New MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus) cases reported on Oct 26 were in a 53-year-old man, which proved fatal, and in a 44-year-old man, both from Riyadh. The 44-year-old man is a healthcare worker and may have had contact with cases in a healthcare setting.

Cases reported on Oct 27 involved a 61-year-old woman and a 90-year-old woman from Riyadh and Jeddah, respectively. Both women are currently being treated in an intensive care unit.

All of the newly reported patients had a preexisting disease, although none had been exposed to animals or suspected or confirmed cases in a community setting.

On Oct 25, the Saudi MOH also reported the recovery of a 35-year-old woman from Taif, and on Oct 26, the death of a 70-year-old man from Taif. Since June 2012, 433 people in Saudi Arabia have recovered from MERS-CoV, the ministry said.
