Saudi MOH: 3 MERS Cases (2 in Riyadh, 1 in Taif)



# 9289

I would note that Arabic twitter (Results for  كورونا  aka `Coronavirus’) – and to a lesser extent Arabic media – continues to carry a large amount of MERS related traffic. Rumors of cases, frequently followed by denials, are on the upswing across Middle Eastern social media.  

While some – like the rumored 119 cases last week in Taif – are less than credible, others may have more substance to them.  We’ll just have to wait to see.


In the meantime, the Saudi MOH has announced three new cases today.
