Saudi MOH Reports 1 New MERS Case In Hofuf (Fatal)

# 10,194

The Hofuf (aka `Hafoof', `Hafuf', etc.) outbreak continues (see FluTrackers list) with the 30th case from this city since mid-April.

Initially described as a `family cluster', this outbreak has since morphed into a broader nosocomial outbreak.  

Today we learn of another case - already fatal at the time of the announcement - apparently a contact of a previously diagnosed case.  We'll have to await the WHO report to get additional details on when and how this case was infected.
