      UAE Reports MERS-CoV Case



      UAE’s Proximity to Saudi Arabia

      # 7475


      Overnight the Arabic press has reported that an 82 year-old cancer patient from the UAE has been diagnosed with the emerging MERS coronavirus infection at an Abu Dhabi hospital.
      Unknown at this time are epidemiological details like the onset date, date of lab confirmation, the patient’s recent travel history and or animal exposures, possible hospital exposures, and any details on contact tracing or testing.
      While short on details, these media reports (such as the one below from Gulf News) are long on reassurances.

      Published: 00:03 July 12, 2013

      Abu Dhabi : An 82-year-old UAE national has been diagnosed with novel Coronavirus (MERS-CoV) in one of the hospitals in Abu Dhabi. The patient is male with multiple myeloma and is currently admitted in the ICU.

      <snip></snip>

      This case represents the first diagnosed case of the disease within UAE.

      MOH added that WHO confirmed that the virus is not a concern for public health at the moment, and that the current situation does not require a travel ban to any country in the world, nor screenings at different ports, nor any restrictions on trade.

      The ministry reassures everyone that detected cases globally continue to be very low compared to other types of flu. The Ministry confirms that the situation does not call for concern and that it is monitoring the situation closely to ensure the health and safety of everyone.
      In addition to dismissively characterizing MERS-CoV as `a type of flu’, press reports are portraying this as the first MERS diagnosis in the UAE (see also Al Arabiya report UAE announces first case of MERS coronavirus infection).

      Technically true, although this ignores that fact that at least two others from the UAE have been diagnosed with the virus within days of leaving the country.

      </dl>
      Both of these patients subsequently died.

      Unknowns at this time include the source of this virus, how it is jumping into the human population, how well it is (or isn’t) transmitting in the community, its true attack rate (including asymptomatic or subclinical infections), and why the patient profile appears skewed towards elderly men with comorbidities.
      While we’ve not seen any evidence of sustained community transmission of the MERS coronavirus, concerns are such that this week the World Health organization convened an emergency meeting of International experts to discuss the MERS-CoV threat.

      This group will reconvene next Wednesday (see WHO Statement On Today’s MERS-CoV Meeting), and we should see some kind of consensus of the threat released.
      With so many unknowns - and with Ramadan now underway and millions of religious pilgrims expected to visit the Arabian peninsula over the next few months - public health officials around the world are gearing up in case they are called upon to deal with the spread of this virus.

        Clusters


        Cluster 1 Jordan Cluster April 2012

        Two fatal cases, a 45 year-old woman and a 25 year-old man, from Jordan in April 2012. The 2 cases were discovered through testing of samples from a cluster of 11 pneumonia cases in health care workers that occurred at that time. These two individuals were health care workers and most likely contracted the infection from a treated patient or coworker.

        Cluster 2 Saudi Arabia Cluster November 2012

        In late October and early November, 2013, three male family members were confirmed with NCoV in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Two males werei n their 30s and third was 70 years old. The 70-year old male and a 39 year old male died. The third male, a 31-years old, apparently recovered. It is presumed the 70 year old male was the father of one or both of the younger men.

        Cluster 3, United Kingdom Cluster January 2013

        A father and his son and a female relative in the United Kingdom represent the third cluster of cases. The son and female relative contracted the infection from their father after he returned to the United Kingdom from Saudi Arabia. This cluster also presents clear evidence of H2H transmission.
        The index cases of this cluster is a 60-year-old male who resided in Birmingham England. He had a 39-year-old son who was suffering from brain cancer and was diagnosed with a low chance of survival in November 2012. The son moved to Birmingham near his father to receive chemotherapy treatment in January 2013.

        Between December 16 and January 20th, the index case traveled to Pakistan to inform relatives about his son’s cancer. On his return to his home to Birmingham, he stopped in Mecca, Saudi Arabia beginning on January 20 to pray for the recovery of his son. He experienced symptom onset on January 24, 2013 while still in Saudi Arabia and returned to the United Kingdom on January 28, 2013. He was hospitalized on January 31, 2013.

        Following his return from Saudi Arabia on January 31, 2013, The index case had contact with both his son and the female relative when he returned home. The female relative began experiencing symptoms on February 5. The son began experiencing symptoms on February 7th, presumably while being treated with chemotherapy. On February 17th, 10 days later, the son died from the infection. Neither he nor the female relative had traveled outside the United Kingdom. The father died on March 19, 2013 (link).

        Cluster 4, Saudi Arabia Cluster March 2013

        Little information is available about this cluster. One of the contacts of a 39 year old male who died on March 3, 2013 tested positive for NCoV. This individual recovered and no further information is currently available.

        Cluster 5, Saudi Arabia Cluster April 2013

        Two of the three cases reported from Saudi Arabia on May 3, 2013 are reported to be family members. No further information is available.

              Emirati, 82, dies in Abu Dhabi after contracting new coronavirus

              The man, 82, is the first confirmed death in the UAE of someone infected with the Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus, known as Mers-CoV.

              He died this month and was not known to have travelled abroad, the World Health Organisation said.

              The patient had been undergoing chemotherapy for the past two years, the WHO said. Patients with pre-existing conditions are known to be susceptible to the coronavirus.

              "He presented with acute respiratory distress on July 6," a spokesman for the organisation said yesterday. "His condition deteriorated and he was hospitalised in ICU on July 8 and confirmed with Mers on July 10."

                Eight additional overseas cases of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome closely monitored by DH

                The Department of Health (DH) is today (August 29) closely monitoring eight additional cases of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome reported to the World Health Organization (WHO) by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA).

                According to the WHO, the cases include two men from the KSA's capital, aged 54 and 51, with chronic illnesses, who have died.

                The remaining six patients include three males and three females aged 31 to 70. Five of them, from southern KSA and the capital with underlying medical conditions, are currently hospitalised. The other patient from southern KSA is a contact of a confirmed case and is asymptomatic.

                In addition, a previously confirmed case from the United Arab Emirates has died.

                This brings the latest global number of confirmed cases of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome to 102, including 49 deaths.

                "The Centre for Health Protection (CHP) of the DH will seek more information on the cases from the WHO and the relevant health authorities. The CHP will stay vigilant and continue to work closely with the WHO and overseas health authorities to monitor the latest developments of this disease," a DH spokesman remarked.

                Locally, the CHP will continue its surveillance mechanism with public and private hospitals, practising doctors and the airport for any suspected case of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome.

                "No human infection with this virus has been identified so far in Hong Kong," the spokesman stressed.
