It's been a busy day in Saudi Ministry of Health. Here's another news release: Health: recording 4 cases of infection (Corona) new 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 four cases of HIV infection in Jeddah.
The first citizen to a healthy domain works, at the age of 28 years old and receiving treatment for intensive care, asking God to him a speedy recovery.
The second citizen at the age of 35 years old and had no symptoms.
And the third for citizenship operate the domain of health, at the age of 32 years old and has no symptoms.
And the fourth to a resident at the age of 33 years old and had no symptoms.
This brings the MERS case tally in Saudi Arabia to 175; deaths remain at 66.
We have two more HCWs, presumably staff at either King Fahd Hospital or King Abdulaziz Hospital; one of them is in intensive care while the other is asymptomatic. An expat is also asymptomatic, and so is a citizen. Any links between cases are unknown.
