# 10,537

 

Sporting new graphics, but conveying little more in the way of additional information (other than the promise of reporting asymptomatic cases), the Saudi MOH has announced one additional MERS case in Jeddah.

 

This is the second case in a week from that city whose exposure is listed as `under review’.  

 

At this time we don’t know if these are sporadic community cases, a family cluster, or cases associated with a healthcare facility.   In the spring of 2014 Jeddah was the epicenter of several large nosocomial outbreaks of MERS.
