Saudi MOH: 1 New MERS Case



# 9079


As usual, the Saudi MOH is providing minimal information, but after a summer with very few MERS cases reported, KSA has announced four widely scattered infections over the past 8 days. 


Previous cases have hailed from Taif, Riyadh, and Jubail while today’s case comes from Najram near the Yemen border.


With in excess of two million visitors expected to arrive for this year’s Hajj – which begins in less than 3 weeks -  any upsurge in MERS cases will be watched carefully.
