Saudi MOH: One Primary MERS Case In Jeddah


Despite the daily list showing `MOH: 'No New Corona Cases Recorded' for the 27th, if you follow the link you'll find a single `primary' case was reported in Jeddah.   This is only the 4th case reported by the Saudis this month, in what has been an unusually quiet December.

`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.   Some may be linked to camel exposure.

Other than his age (54), gender (male), and the fact he is an ex-pat, little else is revealed about the patient who is in stable condition.
