MERS-CoV in June/July...

Looks like MERS-CoV cases, while few in number, remain well distributed across nearly all of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia still.

With such a remarkably widespread distribution one must ask, where are these cases coming from? In the absence of any noted hospital outbreaks, do we assume that they are all from animal>>human acquisition?

And what is it about Ha'il, Jizan and Qasim provinces that are protecting them during this period?
