TORONTO - Authorities in Saudi Arabia are investigating whether there is a new cluster of MERS coronavirus cases linked to a hospital in the eastern part of the country, a separate incident from a previously reported large hospital outbreak there.
A case reported Wednesday and five reported Tuesday may be linked to a hospital, said the country's deputy minister of health, Dr. Ziad Memish. He would not reveal the name of the town or the hospital.
