Saudi MOH Announces 1 MERS Case (Primary-Camel Contact) 


After a couple of rough days where the Saudi MOH website was either offline, or responding slowly, it appears as if they have got things back under control.
Late yesterday they posted an update for the 9th, with no new cases and 1 recovery. 
Today's update adds 1 new case - the 21st in the past 14 days. This newest patient is the second one in the past three days from Mahyel Aseer, with both reported to have had recent direct contact with camels.   
The first case - reported yesterday - had already died at the time of the report.  Today's case is listed in stable condition.

Additionally, 2 more deaths among previously reported cases are announced.
