Saudi Arabia reports 2 new MERS cases in Riyadh

Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Health (MOH) reported one MERS-CoV case both yesterday and today in Riyadh, a break from dozens of cases in recent weeks in the city of Hofuf.

The case of MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus) reported yesterday involves a 40-year-old Saudi man, and the one today involves a 65-year-old Saudi woman. Neither is a health worker, both are listed in critical condition, and neither had recent contact with a MERS case, the MOH said.

Since the beginning of the month, 21 of 27 confirmed MERS cases in Saudi Arabia have been in Hofuf, which lies in the northeastern part of the country. Officials have reported healthcare and family clusters in the region.

The 2 new cases in Riyadh lift the outbreak total in Saudi Arabia to 1,041 cases, including 460 deaths, the MOH said.
