After reporting only one new case yesterday, the Saudi MOH is back today with 4 new MERS cases in Riyadh, along with reporting the death of a previously reported case.   Three of today’s cases are listed as contacts of previously identified laboratory confirmed cases.

Although the reporting has been erratic (the WeCanStopThis.com website is still offline), and there are gaps in the reports on the Saudi MOH portal, over the past 12 days Saudi Arabia has reported 33 MERS Cases.  The MOH is currently reporting 28 cases in isolation at this time, with 3 at home and 25 in the hospital.
