Saudi Arabia says 2 more MERS patients have died

From Robert Roos at CIDRAP :

" Two more Saudi Arabians have died of MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus) infections, the Saudi Ministry of Health (MOH) reported today. Both cases had been announced previously.

The patients were a 75-year-old "citizen" in Al-Ahsa governorate and a 63-year-old woman in Riyadh. The MOH simultaneously also announced the recovery of three other MERS patients: a 61-year-old citizen in Al-Ahsa, a 41-year-old woman in the Riyadh region, and a 50-year-old woman in the Eastern region.

The two deaths raise the Saudi death toll, unofficially, to 36, out of 64 cases. At this writing, the MOH's coronavirus overview page has not been updated since Jun 24 and still lists the death toll at 34."
