Saudi Arabia reports 2 new MERS cases

Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Health (MOH) today reported two new MERS-CoV cases and one recovery in a previously reported patient. Both new cases occurred in Taif, and the MOH says that both patients are in critical condition.

The first patient is a 22-year-old male expatriate who had contact with a suspected or confirmed MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus) case-patient in a community setting. He is not a healthcare worker, had no contact with MERS-CoV patients in healthcare settings, and had no preexisting disease or exposure to animals.

The second case-patient is a 70-year-old Saudi woman with preexisting disease. The MOH is investigating whether or not she had contact with animals or other MERS patients.

The MOH also reported that a 36-year-old man from Taif has recovered from the disease. He had an underlying medical condition and is not a healthcare worker.

Of the 802 Saudi MERS cases that the MOH has confirmed, 15 are active, and 340 have been fatal.
