We've had some serious confusion this weekend about the latest MERS case (and death) in Saudi Arabia.
Numerous news sources have cited a Sunday announcement on the KSA MOH corona page of the death of a 37-year-old resident of Riyadh. They include Kuwait News Agency, Atlas Info.fr, the Iranian news agency PressTV, and even Arab News. But just such a case was announced on Thursday, November 21, and I posted about it the same day. Andrew Rambaut's invaluable table of MERS cases lists it as case #181, on November 21. As of 9:00 p.m. PST Sunday night, the Saudis have posted nothing new on either their Arabic or their English pages.
So for some reason, a lot of media have spread the idea that this was a brand-new, announced-Sunday case. Well, we all make mistakes.
