Thanks to Helen Branswell for tweeting the news from the Saudi Ministry of Health: Health: recording 4 cases of infection (Corona) in Riyadh new. A Google translation:
In the context of the work of epidemiological investigation and ongoing follow-up carried out by the Ministry of Health for the virus, "Corona" that causes respiratory syndrome, the Middle East, announced the Ministry of Health for the registration of four cases in Riyadh.
First and second Mqimitan working in the health sector, Mkhalttan to a confirmed case, and not have symptoms. The third citizen at the age of 53 years is suffering from several chronic diseases and receiving treatment for intensive care, asking God's healing for all.
The fourth case they are a citizen at the age of 73 years had been suffering from several chronic diseases, has passed away, may he rest in peace.
Mike Coston at Avian Flu Diary has also posted on this report. This brings the Saudi number to 136 cases and 56 deaths. If I understand this translation, two of the cases are asymptomatic healthcare workers who were in contact with a case. As usual we have no idea when the cases were contracted or when they were confirmed. And judging from the ages given here, the reported case of a 38-year-old man in Al-Jawf has not yet been officially confirmed.
