    Media Reports Of A New MERS-CoV Case In Qatar




    Updated: Qatar’s Supreme Health Council has posted the following bare-bones report
    Supreme council of health announces cure of the last MERS-CoV patient and reports a new case
    Doha - Friday, 8 Nov 2013

    SCH announced a new MERS-CoV case of a resident in Qatar. He is a 48 years old male with comorbidities and is being treated in the intensive care unit. All close contacts screened and were negative for the virus initially.
    SCH is also announcing the cure of the last case admitted to hospital after being cared for in hospital.

    # 7952


    Although I’ve yet to find anything official on the Supreme Health Council of Qatar website, in the past hour at least two Arabic media sources have reported that a new MERS-CoV case has been diagnosed in Doha. These reports also indicate a previously infected person has recovered.

    This from the Bharain News Agency (BNA):

He pointed out that examination was performed on all contacts of the patient, and the initial results were negative.

        The above post is confusing.

        At least two media reports from November 19th report that this individual was treated and discharged after 3 weeks of treatment.

          Re: Qatar - Man, 48 confirmed new coronavirus case - November 8, 2013- Died

          This could be a new case entirely. However, in previous KUNA announcements about new cases some details have been offered.

          The government issued a statement dated November 19 that a 48 year old man (case #157) had been treated and released from the hospital.

          Provisionally I have indicated this as the death of the previously known case #157. Maybe he had a serious relapse?

          There is nothing on the Supreme Council of Health site about this death/new case? as of this time.

            Qatar announces fourth Mers coronavirus death

            An expatriate living in Qatar has died of Mers, bringing to four the number of deaths in the Gulf state from the coronavirus, health authorities said on Friday.

            The 48-year-old had other pre-existing health problems, Qatar’s Supreme Council of Health in a statement.

            It was the second death reported in Qatar this week. On Tuesday the emirate reported the death of a 61-year-old expatriate.

            Two other deaths were reported in early September.

            In addition, a Qatari man died in a London hospital in late June after contracting the virus.

            The World Health Organisation said on Wednesday that it has been notified of 155 laboratory-confirmed cases of the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus worldwide so far, including 64 deaths, most of them in Qatar’s larger neighbour Saudi Arabia.

              A Confusing MERS-CoV Report From Qatar





              # 8000


              What ought to be routine announcement – that of another MERS death in the Middle East - is complicated by the fact that this patient appears to be the same one who was reported earlier this week to have fully recovered and been released from the hospital. Tracking of individual cases in the Middle East is admittedly difficult since no identifying information other than age – and usually their gender and location – are generally provided.
              Based on FluTrackersMERS Case List by Country, Qatar has only announced one 48 year-old MERS case thus far, which leaves us with a bit of a mystery.
              First a link and text from one of the many Arabic media reports this morning (no update on Qatar’s Supreme Council of Health website), and then a flashback to the announcement last Tuesday that their 48 year-old MERS case had recovered and been released.
              Qatar Health announced the death of a resident infected with Corona
              The Supreme Council for the health of the country today for the death of a resident at the age of 48 years are infected with (Corona) that causes respiratory syndrome Middle East.

              The Supreme Council of Health Qatar in a statement that the deceased, who did not disclose his identity had been suffering from several chronic diseases.

              With this announcement toll of victims who Hsdhm virus since the beginning of his appearance to more than 67 deaths worldwide, according to statistics from the World Health Organization.
              Compare this report to this announcement, lifted earlier this week from Qatar’s Supreme Council of Health website, apparently announcing this same patient’s recovery.

              One patient recovered, another one died in MERS coronavirus, SCH says


              Doha - Tuesday, 19 Nov 2013

              The Supreme Council of Health (SCH) has announced Tuesday the recovery of one resident patient inflicted with MERS coronavirus and another passed away due to the same illness.
              The 48-year-old first patient was admitted to hospital for three weeks to receive proper treatment. After a course of treatment, he recovered, the SCH said in a press statement.
              In the same context, the SCH announces the death of 61-year old expat patient who was battling several chronic health issues and tested positive for the MERS coronavirus.
              Perhaps this discrepancy comes from an error in reporting (either today, last Tuesday, or in the reported age of one of the previous cases). It’s possible, I suppose, there might be another 48-year-old MERS case we don’t know about. There are a lot of possibilities here.

              When there were but a handful of cases, keeping a reasonably accurate line-listing of patients was fairly easy.
              But as the number of cases has grown, and given deplorable lack of information (such as onset dates, dates of hospitalization, or dates of death) being provided by the respective Ministries of Health, the task of compiling and tracking cases has grown much harder.
              No one truly believes that the (roughly) 160 MERS cases identified to date represents the full burden of the disease (see Referral: Dr. Ian Mackay On `The Slowly Growing Epidemic’ Of MERS-CoV). But these line lists have provided important information regarding the rate of new cases being detected, and their geographic spread.
              At some point, if MERS cases continue to accrue, it will become impossible to keep reasonable track of individual cases. We saw that with the H1N1 Pandemic virus quite early on, and that is to be expected with any emerging disease that find success in the human population.
              But when that happens we will lose an important tracking tool, one that could have been even more valuable had public health officials in the Middle East been just a little more forthcoming with epidemiological details on these early cases.

                DOHA: The Supreme Council of Health (SCH) yesterday announced the death of a 48-year-old expatriate infected with MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) and suffering from several chronic diseases.
                This is the second MERS death involving an expatriate in Qatar. On Tuesday, SCH had announced the death of a 61-year-old expat due to MERS.
                It had also said a 48-year-old expatriate suffering from MERS had recovered after three weeks’ treatment.
                SCH said yesterday there was no new confirmed MERS case in the country.

                    Among those deemed recovered is a 48-year-old expat who the SCH said was discharged from the hospital this week. It is unclear whether the man who died is the one who had been released from HMC, or a new patient whose case was not yet publicly announced. Health officials today offered conflicting reports to Doha News.

                    Since last September, eight people inside of Qatar have been diagnosed with MERS, and four of those patients have died...
