MERS-CoV cases and deaths rising.

FluTrackers report on 3 new cases of infection and 4 deaths among existing MERS-CoV cases.

The numbers are changing rapidly (cases being released in several batches of 3 doesn't help).

Currently there are at least 64 total cases and 34 deaths among people with MERS-CoV. Most cases are in people with underlying chronic medical conditions. The Saudi Arabian Ministry of Health (MOH) regularly accounts for this clinical feature in each press release.
