Saudi MOH: 1 New Primary MERS Case In Buraidah


As we discussed yesterday in Comparing MERS in January-February vs March, Buraidah has been a major hub of MERS activity during the entire month of March. The city's King Fahad hospital has seen a large nosocomial outbreak, and we've seen a number (n=8) of community acquired `Primary cases' . . . most without a stated risk exposure.

Today we add another Primary case, but this time this case (56, M) is listed as having had contact with camels.

Additionally, 1 death, and one recovery (also from the Buraidah outbreak) are reported.
