New MERS-CoV case, likely imported, reported in Qatar

1st source: @makoto_au_japon

France 24 reported a case of MERS-CoV in a 59-year-old (59M) Qatari man. He is currently stable.

He is reported by the Qatari Supreme Council of Health (SCH) as having arrived from "another country" and of having symptoms while abroad, so this is then an imported case leaving Qatar's local acquisitions at 2, by my count.

This brings the tally to 97 cases with 46 deaths and the proportion of fatal cases (PFC) drops to 47.4%.
