The Ministry of Health reported a new MERS case on Friday without any fatalities.

The ministry confirmed that a 36-year-old man, suffering from diabetes and high blood pressure, had been diagnosed with MERS.

He developed respiratory difficulties on Monday and was admitted to a government hospital in Qunfudah on Wednesday.

He has now been transferred to a government hospital in Jeddah. He was being treated at the ICU, the ministry added.

Five patients were discharged from hospitals in Makkah, Madinah and Jeddah following full recovery.

They included a 36-year-old man from a government hospital in Makkah, a 71-year-old male and a 42-year-old female from a government hospital in Jeddah.
The other two patients were a 20-year-old female and a 35-year-old male from a government hospital in Madinah.

According to Eurosurveillance, two patients, returning to the Netherlands from a pilgrimage in Makkah and Madinah, were diagnosed with the Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) infection in May 2014.

The source and mode of transmission have not yet been determined.
