        The 'developing pneumonia' is a translation artifact: it must be read as [the patient is presenting a] ''clinical diagnosis / picture of pneumonia''

          ...The Spanish Ministry of Health said the woman was admitted to hospital in Madrid on Nov. 1 and is in stable condition. In its press release, the ministry said it is following up with people who were in contact with her to determine if others have contracted the sickness.
          That will likely involve tracking people who travelled on the same plane or planes with the ill woman, who journeyed back to Spain from Saudi Arabia shortly before being hospitalized.
          The woman was already experiencing signs of her illness before she left the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, a World Health Organization expert said Wednesday.
          “She became symptomatic while she was in KSA,” said Dr. Anthony Mounts, the WHO’s point person for the new virus, a cousin of the coronavirus that caused the 2003 SARS outbreak.
          We understand that she did perform the Hajj and came back and was admitted to hospital in Spain and was tested there.”
          Mounts did not know if the woman flew on a commercial airline or on one of the charter flights used by many who travel to Saudi Arabia for the Hajj, http://metronews.ca/news/world/84672...-went-to-hajj/

                  The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) said today in an updated risk assessment that the 61-year-old woman with no known underlying health conditions was in Saudi Arabia from Oct 2 to Nov 1. She visited Medina, then Mecca and had no known contact with animals.

                  Her symptoms began Oct 15 with cough and fever, and she was seen at a hospital emergency department of a Mecca hospital on Oct 28 and 29, where health workers diagnosed her as having pneumonia, based on chest x-ray findings.

                  Spain's health ministry told CIDRAP News that it has relayed more details about the case to European health authorities, including that the woman refused to be hospitalized in Saudi Arabia and was hospitalized in Madrid on Nov 1 when she arrived back in Spain.

                    So in a novel coronavirus outbreak, in a pilgrimage city, during the Hajj, the Saudis let a confirmed pneumonia patient out into the crowds and international airports.

                    Not really great public health.

                      If really interested in preserving public health some national and international health agencies should have taken more stringent measures. But at the end, the risk of a wider dissemination of the virus has been ruled as minor with respect the economic burden.

                        And those were the women-to-drive protests days. The government of Saudi Arabia promised to have all available police agencies out on the street enforcing the law to arrest women that drove and the men who supported them.
