Saudi MOH Announces 1 New Asymptomatic MERS Case In Riyadh



After three days with no new reports from Riyadh's extended nosocomial MERS outbreak, the MOH has announced a new asymptomatic hospital acquired case.

Between inconsistencies in the daily reports, delays in case announcements, and the recent umbrage taken by the Saudi's over the media coverage of this outbreak (see Crof's excellent WHO EMRO: Clarification on a MERS-CoV case in Saudi Arabia), it's difficult to know whether this outbreak is really on the wane.

But as it stands now, over the past 10 days Riyadh has reported more than 2 dozen cases.
