Saudi Arabia reports more MERS deaths - Middle East - Al Jazeera English
« May 11, 2014    04:19:00 AM »

Saudi Arabia has announced that another 13 people have died from the MERS coronavirus in the past day, as the World Health Organisation prepares for an emergency meeting over concerns about the spread of the disease.

The Middle East Respiratory System coronavirus has now killed 139 people and infected 480 others in the kingdom since it first appeared in 2012.

The increase in the number of cases in different countries raises a number of questions.

Tarik Jasarevic, WHO spokesman

In its most recent tally, issued on Saturday, the Saudi health ministry said six people died from the disease in the past 24 hours.

Three women, aged 22, 26 and 35, died in the capital, Riyadh, a 68-year-old woman and a 78-year-old man in the western city of Medina, and a man in his 70s in the commercial capital, Jeddah.
