    Saudi Arabia Announces 3 More MERS-CoV Cases




    # 7396


    Just when it was beginning to look like the Saudi MERS-CoV outbreak might be winding down, for the second time this week KSA’s MOH has announced another 3 cases.
    Of particular note, these cases are not located in the Eastern Al Asha region, which has been the primary location of the recent Saudi Outbreak.
    One case is reported in the central highlands of Saudi Arabia in Wadi Al-Dawaser, while two cases are reported in the western city of Taif, which lies very near the holy city of Mecca.

    A location that is all the more significant since millions of religious pilgrims will be flocking to Mecca over the next 6 weeks for Umrah.


    MOH: "Three New Confirmed Cases of Coronavirus Recorded in Taif .. One of Them Passed Away in Wadi Al-Dawaser"
    14 June 2013
    Within the framework of the epidemiological surveillance of the novel Coronavirus (MERS-CoV), the Ministry of Health (MOH) has announced that three new confirmed cases of this virus have been recorded.

        Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) – update

        15 June 2013


        The Ministry of Health in Saudi Arabia has announced an additional three laboratory-confirmed cases, including one death with Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV).

        The first patient is a 45-year-old man with underlying medical conditions from Taif governorate. He became ill since the end of May 2013 and is in critical condition.

        The second patient is a 68-year-old woman with underlying medical conditions from Taif governorate. She became ill on 6 June 2013 and is in critical condition.

        The third was a fatal patient of 46 years old from Wadi Al-Dawaser. He became ill on 29 May 2013, was admitted to a hospital on 8 June 2013 and has died.

        Globally, from September 2012 to date, WHO has been informed of a total of 61 laboratory-confirmed cases of infection with MERS-CoV, including 34 deaths.

        WHO has received reports of laboratory-confirmed cases originating in the following countries in the Middle East to date: Jordan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

        France, Germany, Italy, Tunisia and the United Kingdom also reported laboratory-confirmed cases; they were either transferred there for care of the disease or returned from the Middle East and subsequently became ill.

        In France, Italy, Tunisia and the United Kingdom, there has been limited local transmission among patients who had not been to the Middle East but had been in close contact with the laboratory-confirmed or probable cases.

        Based on the current situation and available information, WHO encourages all Member States to continue their surveillance for severe acute respiratory infections (SARI) and to carefully review any unusual patterns.

        Health care providers are advised to maintain vigilance. Recent travellers returning from the Middle East who develop SARI should be tested for MERS-CoV as advised in the current surveillance recommendations.

        Specimens from patients’ lower respiratory tracts should be obtained for diagnosis where possible.

        Clinicians are reminded that MERS-CoV infection should be considered even with atypical signs and symptoms, such as diarrhoea, in patients who are immunocompromised.

        Health care facilities are reminded of the importance of systematic implementation of infection prevention and control (IPC).

        Health care facilities that provide care for patients suspected or confirmed with MERS-CoV infection should take appropriate measures to decrease the risk of transmission of the virus to other patients, health care workers and visitors.

        All Member States are reminded to promptly assess and notify WHO of any new case of infection with MERS-CoV, along with information about potential exposures that may have resulted in infection and a description of the clinical course.

        Investigation into the source of exposure should promptly be initiated to identify the mode of exposure, so that further transmission of the virus can be prevented.

        WHO does not advise special screening at points of entry with regard to this event nor does it currently recommend the application of any travel or trade restrictions.

        WHO continues to closely monitor the situation.
