Thanks to Mike Coston for sending me a heads-up on the latest report from the KSA MOH MERS page: Health: recording 5 cases of infection (Corona) in Jeddah. The 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 Middle East MERS CoV Ministry announces the registration of five cases of HIV infection in Jeddah.
The first resident at the age of 30 years old, has been recovered.
The second citizen at the age of 59 years has passed away may he rest in peace.
The third resident works the domain of health at the age of 64 years, and his condition is stable.
The fourth and fifth Mqimitan working field of health, namely the same age (27 years), and not have symptoms.
Have been checked 200 samples during the recent period, has proved passivity except as stated above.
The Saudi tally is now up to 199 cases and 70 deaths.
So we have three more cases involving HCWs, one ill and two asymptomatic. An expatriate has recovered, and a Saudi citizen has died. We know nothing about whether any of these cases were in a Jeddah hospital, whether as workers or as patients, and we know nothing about onset dates, symptoms, or measures taken to deal with them.
