Jordan Reports MERS Fatality



# 8578



Over the past week we’ve seen barebones reports of two MERS cases in Jordan. Six days ago in Jordanian News Agency Reports 7th Coronavirus Case – HCW, we learned of a health care worker who was infected after exposure to a Saudi who sought medical care in Jordan, and yesterday’s Media Reporting 8th MERS Case In Jordan.


In neither of these recent reports was the age or condition of these patients revealed, making it difficult to absolutely match either one of them up with today’s report, which cites the death of a MERS case.  


Hopefully the Jordanian MOH will forward the details to the World Health Organization, who can shed more light on the details of this case.  This report is from PETRA, the Jordanian News Agency.



A fourth died as a result of HIV alcorona
