Then came a report of two more MERS cases in Saudi Arabia, but we know about them thanks to the enterprise of Mike Coston; the Saudi ministry's English web page still has nothing about them, and I haven't seen anything in the Saudi media yet, whether in English or Arabic.
Nor have I seen anything in over a week about Moumou Chen, the 51-year-old Huizhou poultry butcher who contracted Guangdong province's first case of H7N9. She was last reported to be in a good Guangzhou hospital, presumably with the formidable Dr. Zhong Nanshan following her case. But we have no new reports on her condition.
So here we have three different new diseases, each with some potential to become a pandemic, actively killing people from China to Cambodia to Saudi Arabia to France. Yet the health ministries of three nations, not to mention WHO, have nothing to say about the latest cases.
