Kuwait's English-language media don't have the story yet, but here's the original Al-Watan report mentioned in the post just below: The first death as «Corona» for expatriate Arab Steny. The Google translation:
Wrote Ali Saud: Al «home» from medical sources familiar with the death of arrivals Arabic as a result of infection with Corona, to be the first death recorded in the country with the virus. sources confirmed «home» to the deceased in the sixth decade of age, indicating that he was admitted to the hospital Babtain treatment from burns suffered but his health deteriorated as a result of inflammation of the lung and bronchial enter intensive care, where he died three days before.

As I was composing this, a tweet came in from Helen Branswell reminding me that Kuwait had two cases last November: the "goals" mentioned in the translation. So this is the first MERS fatality in Kuwait. I hope we learn more about the man's origin and recent travel, if any.
