Saudi MOH: (Week 17) 2nd Primary MERS Case In Medina
For the second time in 4 days, the Saudi MOH has announced a primary MERS case from Medina (aka Madinah), which is a important pilgrimage destination for Umrah and Hajj visitors.
Both patients are male (ages 56 & 76), with the latest (76 y.o.) reportedly having recent camel contact.
Despite the slowdown in MERS reports the past few weeks, KSA is now only 1 case short of matching their entire 2018 total (n=137).
