FluTrackers has noted that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia Ministry of Heath site has another batch of cases and a death among people infected with Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV).
Currently the case tally is at 103 with 48 deaths; the proportion of fatal cases is 46.6%
- 31, Male, underlying conditions, in an intensive care unit, stable, Asir region
- 55, Male, underlying conditions, contact of another case, asymptomatic
- 51, died, Riyadh
Do we have a MERS-CoV outbreak in Riyadh? Most of the cases in the past 3 days have come from this region.
There is also noise of a case in a Jordanian hospital - I will be updating this post as these data coalesce and we get some more info on the cases.
