Saudi MOH: 3 New MERS Cases, 4 Deaths




The Saudi MOH update today indicates two more MERS cases in Riyadh, one of whom is a healthcare worker, and both are listed as contacts of previously confirmed cases.   

A third case, listed as a 67 y.o. male from Hail – located some 700 km north of Riyadh – is listed as a contact of a previous case.  A tad curious since this is the first case we’ve seen from Hail in quite some time.


The report goes on to list 4 deaths from Riyadh, and 3 recent recoveries.
