KSA: Wadi Al Dawasir MERS Cluster Adds 9th Case


The combination household/hospital cluster of MERS cases in Wadi Al Dawasir we've been following for a week has grown to 9 cases; with the addition of another `secondary household contact' today.

So far we've seen  2 listed as `Under Review' (possibly household members), 4 listed as `Secondary Hospital Acquired (patients)',  2 described as `Secondary Household contacts' and 1 asymptomatic HCW.

We will probably have to wait for a WHO update to get much more in the way of details, but for now the good news is that two of the 9 cases are listed as recovered.
