      Subject: Urgent follow up re nCOV cluster in Alhassa KSA


      Dear colleagues,

      As a follow up to the most recently reported 10 case cluster of nCOV in Alhasa in the Eastern Province of KSA. Our investigation is still ongoing and we picked up 3 more cases:

      Case 11: 62 year old female with multiple comorbidities. Start of symptoms [19 Apr 2013] and deceased [3 May 2013]
      Case 12: 71 year old male with multiple comorbidities. Start of symptoms [15 Apr 2013], deceased [3 May 2013]
      Case 13: 58 year old female with comorbidities. Start of symptoms [1 May 2013] and currently ventilated in critical but stable condition.

      So far there is no apparent community transmission and transmission seem linked to one HCF [health care facility].

      We will keep you posted on progress

      <zmemish@yahoo.com>

      [ProMED-mail would like to thank Dr Memish for sharing this information on the 3 new cases associated with the cluster of severe acute respiratory illness (SARI) cases in Alhasa, Eastern Province.

      As enumerated in the above report, there are now 13 cases associated with this cluster, 7 of whom have died (54 per cent). As with the 10 previously reported cases, all 3 of these have existing comorbidities. The statement from the above report -- "So far there is no apparent community transmission and transmission seem linked to one HCF [health care facility]" supports a conclusion that this outbreak is a nosocomial outbreak, and the reason that all confirmed cases to date have had existing comorbidities is that they were presumably infected with the nCoV while hospitalized in this HCF for other pre-existing illnesses.

      The dates of onset of the 13 cases in the cluster in Alhasa are:
      1 case on 14 Apr 2017;
      1 case on 15 Apr 2013;
      2 cases on 17 Apr 2017,
      1 case on 19 Apr 2013;
      4 cases on 22 Apr 2013;
      1 case on 27 Apr 2013;
      1 case on 28 Apr 2013;
      1 case on 30 Apr 2013;
      1 case on 1 May 2013.

      As for route of transmission within the hospital, we await findings of epidemiologic investigations currently under way.

      As of today, 5 May 2013, the breakdown of total confirmed cases of SARI associated with infection with the nCoV (and deaths) by country of report is:
      - Saudi Arabia: 22 (13 deaths)
      - Jordan: 2 (2 deaths)
      - UK: 4 (one patient from Qatar -- under treatment, 3 patients from UK -- one with history of travel to Saudi Arabia and Pakistan prior to illness; one recovered, 2 deaths)
      - Germany: 2 (one patient from Qatar -- discharged, one patient from the UAE -- one death).

      Including the 3 newly confirmed cases, there are now 30 confirmed cases with 18 deaths (60 per cent CFR).

                RIYADH – Two more Saudis have succumbed to a new SARS-like virus, taking the number of deaths from the coronavirus in the Kingdom to seven in one week, the Ministry of Health announced on Monday.

                By Monday morning, 13 cases were registered. Six of the survivors are undergoing treatment.
                ...
                All the cases were found in Saudis, and no expat has been admitted so far with coronavirus infection, said Dr. Mimish.

                He said that there was no cause for panic as all the cases were restricted to a particular hospital in Al-Ahsa.

                Dr. Jaafar Al-Tawfeeq, member of the National Committee for Communicable Diseases, told Saudi Gazette that all those who died of coronavirus were over 50 years of age and were suffering from chronic diseases.
                ...
                Dr. Gewn Stephens, another member, said that the discovery of the virus in the Kingdom and few other countries does not mean that the virus does not exist in other countries. The virus could be found in many countries if thorough diagnosis is done on regular cases of influenza-like infections, she said.

                ... the ministries of health and education are jointly conducting awareness campaigns in schools.

                  Saudi Arabia's announcements in the past five days of seven new deaths from a SARS-like virus have heightened fears that the Mideast outbreak is entering a more-aggressive phase...

                  The man confirmed an account from a hospital official in Hofuf that his three relatives had gone to three different hospitals in Eastern Province.

                  "The Ministry of Health just wants to close the books" by saying the latest outbreak is limited to one hospital, the man said, speaking on a Hofuf street lined with medical centers and pharmacies...



                  ...In Hofuf on Monday, the guards posted outside the intensive-care unit at the private Al Moosa General Hospital were among the few signs of a medical crisis.

                  Malek al Moosa, the hospital's executive director, confirmed that many of the coronavirus patients were treated here. Mr. Moosa denied that his hospital was the center of the outbreak, however, and denied that it was the only hospital treating patients stricken with the virus...
