    MERS kills foreigner in Saudi Arabia

    A foreigner has died from the deadly MERS coronavirus in Saudi Arabia, while Yemen has reported its first case of the disease.

    The foreign man, whose nationality has not been disclosed, died from the coronavirus as eight others in the kingdom, including five health workers in the city of Jeddah, were infected.

    The death brings the nationwide toll in the world's most-affected country to 68, with 189 people infected.

    The Saudi health ministry, which announced the death, said five health workers - two women and three men - and three other people had been infected by MERS in Jeddah.

    The announcement came days after panic over the spread of the virus among medical staff led to the closure of the emergency room at the city's main public hospital.
