We’ve a confusing report from the Saudi MOH this afternoon that increments their case count graphic by four since this morning (see KSA MOH: 2 New MERS-CoV Cases & Fatality In Earlier Case) but the accompanying press release only describes three (or possibly only two) new cases.
It isn’t entirely clear whether the fatal case is a new case, or is a report on the death of a previously known case.
We may need to wait for an English language press release to solve this discrepancy. But for what it’s worth, here is the translated Arabic announcement (h/t @Ironorehopper).
