MERS-CoV cases #82 and #83 are mildly ill outpatients.

Hat tip to Crawford Kilian.

Two new MERS-CoV cases reported on the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Health website.


Both cases are from Asir (Southwestern KSA), the 42F (F=female) is possibly a healthcare worker and the other, a 26M, had contact with another MERS case. No dates. No details of which case.

The KSA has now hosted 86% of known MERS-CoV cases. 64% of all cases with data being male. The new PFC is 53.6%.
