A new Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) table of graphs stacks up...

My new favourite graphic. 

This shows MERS-CoV detection by month since the virus was identified in 2012. Detections are further broken down by each region of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) in which they were reported  by the KSA Ministry of Health website here.

At the moment its highlights that the KSA has a real problem in the Eastern region (Ash Sharqiyah) and growing issue in Ar Riyad (as always with MERS-CoV detections) but that Al Quassim region is also of growing concern.

This table of graphs is part of my MERS-CoV static page to be found at... http://virologydownunder.blogspot.com.au/2014/08/mers-cov-daily-monthly-and-cumulative.html

I try and update these data as often as possible - at the moment detection are rising and February is currently the 4th largest month for new detections - updates occur every day or two.
