MERS reports from 23rd & 24th
For whatever reason the Saudi MOH didn’t update their English language MERS site yesterday (although the Arabic site showed a new case), but today we have yesterday’s and today’s report now posted.
Yesterday’s case involved a 73 y.o. female from Riyadh, with no known routes of exposure (note the expanded categories added yesterday)
Today’s case, from Taif, is apparently the result of nosocomial transmission at a hospital. This is the 16th case reported from the Taif region since September 3rd, with many of the cases apparently linked to hospital exposures.
