cases (including deaths; green) and
deaths (red) by day (bottom, x-axis), per
week. Number of cases on
the left hand (y) axis peak at 8/week
Updating the Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) graphs from just over 2-weeks ago and adding in recent weeks, we see how the cases have been accruing. 

Last week was a big week; 42% of cases from the past 6-weeks occurred then.

There are some differences in some charts when comparing to the earlier post with some of these; put that down to updated dates due to extra data being released and some cases being reported the week(s) after they occurred. I'll keep updating this figure. Those changes may keep happening.
