A number of parents Al-Batin: The virus "Corona" caused the deprivation of their daughters primary school students to attend the school, after the rejection of the sixth director of primary ten Bastkabbahin the result with 8 parameters for always in front of the students.
The بداح Sahli "the son of a woman who died recently the virus has a brother of the deceased in the same virus," the school principal refused to receive the students, which increased psychological problems with students and relatives of the deceased and the injured, especially in light of discretion and Ministry of Health on the number of injured and the late arrival of the results of laboratory testing, what caused the transmission to more than one person from the family members.
He continued: "The Ministry of Health announced heal two cases of infected cases did not know already Basapthma, in the absence of full to us about the event, and we fear that paying a larger, to the point that we are in mourning mother sent to relatives a message asking them to pray without attendance, fearing that نكلف people do not afford, under ignored by the Ministry of painful and put our service and protect us from infectious diseases, and to deprive us of our rights as patients, a simpler let us know what is happening to us and our families, our children, and provide us with a full description for medical حالاتنا ".
He stressed that preventive medicine and infectious diseases department Icoma not visit them at the home of his brother, or his mother during removal or after their death to be sterilized at least.
He completed: "God and yes agent on each of the Khan Secretariat and brought us to where we are from a struggle with life and death, صغيرنا before our old ones, abandoning us and not to guide us and Thaitna to overcome it," explaining that his brother, who suffers from a disability refused hospital Analyses Laboratory him under the pretext of that "موسوس" What caused them to detect it in private hospitals drained their money, likening the virus as "the straw that broke the camel's back."
This appears to be an extended family named Sahli; apparently the woman (grandmother?) died and the Ministry of Health's lab tests were slow in coming; so a male member of the family (adult son?) also died. He may have suffered an underlying medical condition, and tests in private hospitals were too expensive.
Update: WHO has posted a MERS update as a Disease Outbreak News item, which is extremely hard to excerpt and reformat here. So I'll summarize it.
The two Hafr Al-Batin cases are a 79-year-old woman who fell ill on August 21 and died on September 2, and a 47-year-old man with a chronic heart condition, who fell ill on September 1 and is currently in critical condiition. Each is described as a contact of a confirmed MERS-CoV case, presumably the brother mentioned in the translation above.
The other two cases are both of Riyadh healthcare workers working in the same hospital. A 41-year-old woman fell ill on August 15 and died at the end of the month. Her colleague, a 30-year-old man, developed "severe pneumonia" on September 1 and is in critical condition. While neither is said to have had an underlying health condition, MERS continues to thrive in healthcare settings.
Banning the Sahli family's daughters from school sounds like an anxious over-reaction. Presumably the whole extended family has been tested without finding any more cases, even asymptomatic ones. But I can imagine that even the heathcare professionals in Saudi hospitals are feeling extremely anxious now—just as the professionals felt when SARS arrived in their hospitals ten years ago.
