What the family was doing in Trabzon (or in Turkey, for that matter) is unexplained. Nor do we know how long they had been there.
The Turkish Ministry of Health (whose own website has nothing to say about this) has taken an interest in the case. Three of the family members have been "evicted" (evacuated) back to Saudi Arabia, as well as the woman's body. The Minister of Health has taken an interest in the cases, and has sent a team to Trabzon to obtain samples from the cases.
Given this level of official interest, it's surprising that the Turkish media don't seem to have anything on this story, but we can hope for more details as the weekend continues.
