Robert Roos | News Editor | CIDRAP News

In a brief statement, Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Health (MOH) has reported three more cases of Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV), apparently pushing the global case count over 100.
The agency said two of the cases involve a 31-year-old male citizen who has several chronic diseases and is in stable condition in intensive care, and a 55-year-old male citizen who has no symptoms. The older man had contact with a confirmed case-patient. Both cases are in the Asir province in the country's southwest.
