Saudi Arabia: Two More MERS Cases



# 10,045

The Saudi Coronavirus Command Center website remains down for a second day, but Arabic media are carrying an MOH graphic showing two new MERS cases for today – one in Mecca and the other in Hafuf.   


Details on these cases are not currently available, beyond the following summation from


The Ministry of Health, on Wednesday, recording two cases of new infection "Corona" in Mecca and Hofuf, in addition to the deaths Balhvov the past 24 hours.

It is noteworthy that the number of cases of HIV infection since its discovery in the Kingdom reached 999 case, recovered, including 552 state, and 432 died, and remained under treatment, 15 cases


Hofuf (aka Hufof) has reported five recent cases (since May 5th), all believed to be part of a family cluster.  It isn’t clear what epidemiological connection – if any – today’s case has with those previously reported cases.
