Elderly woman is 18th MERS-CoV fatality in KSA
From Arab News
Sunday 26 May 2013
RIYADH: The octogenarian woman in Al-Ahsa who had contracted the SARS-like coronavirus has died, raising the death toll in the Kingdom to 18 and the world total at 23, a Ministry of Health statement said on Sunday.
"An 81-year-old woman who was suffering from kidney failure as well as other chronic illnesses has died" in the eastern Al-Ahsa region after contracting the virus, the statement said.
Now called by the MERS-CoV by the World Health Organization, short for Middle East Respiratory Virus - corona virus, the new virus is from the same family as those that cause common colds and the one that caused the deadly outbreak of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) that emerged in Asia in 2003.
On May 18, the WHO included the 81-year-old woman in Al-Ahsa as case number 41 in its list of MERS-CoV victims worldwide. It cited a report of the Saudi MOH saying the woman became ill on April 28, 2013, and was "currently in critical but stable condition."
he 17th fatality was a 63-year-old Syrian man in the central province of Qassim, the first non-Saudi in the kingdom to catch MERS-CoV.
