Saudi MOH: 1 More MERS Case In Hafuf



# 10,085


The MERS cluster in Hafuf (aka `Hafoof’, `Hafouf’,`Hufof;) which we looked at in some detail earlier today (see WHO MERS-CoV Update – Saudi Arabia) continues to grow more than a month after the first case was identified, with the 10th case reported in today’s MOH update.



While some of these cases have been described as `household contacts’, other are simply described as `contacts’ of previous cases, leaving us with no real sense as to whether this is primarily a family cluster, or if this has evolved into a nosocomial cluster as well.
