Saudi MOH Reports 1 MERS Case In Riyadh


# 10,543

Although we have seen a drop off in the number of MERS cases being reported out of Saudi Arabia over the past week, for the 49th day running the MOH has announced at least one new case, with today’s coming from the recently hard hit capital of Riyadh.

Today’s case is described as a 48 year-old male with contact with a previously diagnosed case. 

With a couple of million Hajjis in-country, the MOH is taking great pains to assure that Mers cases are reducing before haj: Saudi Minister.   The proof in the pudding will come over the next few weeks, when we see if any MERS cases end up carried outside of Saudi Arabia by pilgrims returning home.
