Saudi MOH: 2 New Primary MERS Cases (Al-Baha & Dammam)



The Saudi MOH reports two new Primary MERS Cases (1 with camel exposure), one who is listed in critical condition, and the other who has already expired. 
Posthumous announcements are always worth noting since  they may indicate delayed detection and isolation, raising the chances of seeing additional infections.

While camel contact is frequently cited in primary cases, for the vast majority of community acquired cases, the source of their infection is never known.
