Saudi MOH: Another MERS Case In Hofuf

# 10,203

Meanwhile, the MERS cluster in Hofuf (aka `Hafoof', `Hafuf', etc.) outbreak continues (see FluTrackers list) with now over 30 cases from this city since mid-April.

What apparently began as a `family cluster' has since turned into a major nosocomial outbreak, involving more than two dozen healthcare workers and patients. 

Today's report adds yet another case, although exactly how this one fits into the chain of transmission in Hofuf isn't clear.
