For the second day running, and the fifth case reported over the past 9 days, the Saudi MOH has announced a fresh MERS case, this time in Riyadh  which last reported a case 4 days ago (Sept 12th).  Essentially all we know is the patient is a 39 year old male, Ex-Pat who is not a HCW, and who is in intensive care.


With the Hajj set to begin in just over two weeks, and with that the influx of more than 2 million pilgrims to the Kingdom, this recent uptick in cases is of particular concern.
