Saudi MOH Announces 1 Primary MERS Case in Khaiber


The Saudi MOH announces their 8th MERS case for the month of April - considerably off the pace we saw in March - and once again it involves a primary case with camel contact.

As we discussed last week in Saudi MOH Survey Of Public Knowledge On MERS-CoV, despite two years of warnings from the MOH and MOA, there remains a good deal of public resistance to the idea that camels can carry, and transmit, MERS-CoV to humans.
