Saudi MOH Reports 1 MERS-CoV Case


It's been 9 days since the last MERS case was reported in Saudi Arabia, and while the lull has been broken, the only report the MOH has issued is in Arabic.

Normally translating Arabic to English isn't a problem if you are dealing with text, but since this is in the form of a graphic - without OCR translation software - I'm afraid we'll have to wait for clarification from another source. 

What we can tell is that it appears to be a primary (community acquired), symptomatic case, without known camel or other risk exposure. 

Hopefully an English language graphic will be posted, otherwise we'll probably have to wait for the next WHO MERS update.
