# 8675


While not exactly a deluge, after 48 hours the drought of no reports from KSA on MERS appears to be broken.   Of note, 2 of the three newly reported cases have already died.  

 

One died just a day after admission to the hospital, but the other - a 39 y.o. female with co-morbidities and a history of exposure to a previously diagnosed case - had been hospitalized for a week.

 

The third case is listed as stable, and in isolation at home.  Four other deaths from previously announced cases were also reported.
