Saudi MOH Announces 3 New MERS Cases, 1 Fatality


The Riyadh MERS outbreak continues, with two new cases announced - confusingly shown on the map as asymptomatic but listed as symptomatic in the chart - making 25 cases reported since the 15th in Riyadh.

Additionally, another primary case has been announced - this time in Taif - which is about 60 miles east of the Holy City of Mecca, where tens of thousands of religious pilgrims are currently gathered for Ramadan.

Meanwhile, what appears to be the index case - who was listed in critical condition 5 days ago - has died.
