Saudi MOH Reports 4 MERS Cases, 4 Recent Fatalities


# 9774

The Saudi MOH reports 4 new cases of MERS today, all from the Saudi Capital Riyadh. 


Unlike yesterday’s report, which featured 3 HCWs (1 from Buraydah, 2 from Riyadh) with nosocomial exposure, none are healthcare workers and only one of today’s cases is apparently suspected of a healthcare associated exposure.


As we discussed a few weeks ago, in WHO MERS Update & The Community Transmission Mystery, while some cases are identified as having animal, hospital, or community exposures – for most cases the route of infection remains undetermined.
