Three new cases of MERS reported in Saudi Arabia

The Saudi Arabian Ministry of Health (MOH) announced three new cases of MERS-CoV yesterday, and two involved direct contact with camels.

The cases are from three different cities. A 74-year-old Saudi man from Bisha is in stable condition after presenting with symptoms of MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus) infection.

Two other patients are in critical condition, including a 76-year-old man from Hail who had direct contact with camels and a 29-year-old man from Riyadh whose disease is listed as primary, meaning it is unlikely he contracted the disease from another person.

The MOH observed another case on Feb 23. Information about that case, however, is in Arabic only on the MOH Web site, but the patient appears to be from Jeddah, according to a post from H5N1, an infectious disease news blog.

The cases raise the country's MERS total to 1,567 cases, including 651 deaths. Eleven patients are still being treated for the disease.
