Saudi MOH Announces 5 More MERS Cases


# 9723



For the second day in a row the Saudi MOH has announced 5 new cases, bringing their 7-day total to 39, and February’s total so far to 51.


Of today’s 5 cases, only one is listed as having a known risk exposure (contact with a case in a hospital).


For a discussion of what we know, and don’t know, about community transmission you may wish to revisit my first blog of this morning (WHO MERS Update – Saudi Arabia).  Cases are once again widely scattered across the Kingdom, and two deaths and one recovery are also reported.
