      12 Filipinos in quarantine after Saudi dies of Mers

      Individuals under observation were among larger group of people who had been in close contact with patient

      Manila: Twelve Filipinos who had been in close contact with a Saudi man who died in a private hospital due to a suspected Middle East Coronavirus (MERS-CoV) infection showed symptoms like cough, chills, fever, and shortness of breath but tested negative for the deadly virus, senior officials said.

      The Saudi man, whose name was not released, died on September 29 after being quarantined at an undisclosed hospital after showing symptoms of MERS-CoV on September 26, nine days after he arrived in the Philippines on September 17, Health Secretary Janette Garin said in a report on Saturday.

      The Saudi man might have picked up the MERS-CoV infection earlier, Garin said, adding that it called for those who were on the same flight as him to be traced and to undergo tests for MERS-CoV.

      “His demise is the first MERS-CoV-related death in the Philippines,” said Lyndon Lee Suy, spokesperson of the health department.
