Saudi MOH Reports 3 Primary MERS Cases


Meanwhile, in KSA the MOH continues to report widely scattered `primary' MERS cases, with 3 more today, two of which are linked to camel exposure.

`Primary cases’ are those that occur in the community when there is no known exposure to a healthcare facility or to a known human case.  

While some are linked to camel exposure (either direct or indirect), for many, how or where they acquired the virus remains a mystery.  So far in November, out of 13 primary cases announced, 6 are listed as having `camel exposure', while 7 cases have no known risk exposures.
