Saudi MOH Resumes MERS Updates: 4 Cases Added


After 5 days without posting, the Saudi MOH began adding daily MERS updates to their website this afternoon, although some of the data is still missing.

As the graphic below shows, there is no entry for June 24th, and the link descriptions only cite two new cases. By cross checking with the Arabic page, we actually find new cases reported on the 22nd, 23rd, 24th, and 25th. 

Over the six days (June 21st-June 26th) the MOH reports 4 new cases, 11 Recoveries, and 4 deaths.  A considerable drop over what was being reported just a week or so ago. 

While reporting from the MOH has been a bit erratic over the past week, and we may have to wait for a WHO update to really sort things out, it is a relief to see that the Saudis are continuing to post their daily reports.
