More Healthcare Workers Hit by MERS

Three new cases of infection with the Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) -- including two more healthcare workers -- have been reported in Saudi Arabia.

The two healthcare workers, both women, have mild symptoms after exposure to patients who had laboratory-confirmed MERS, the World Health Organization reported.

The agency did not report whether the two, from the Asir and Riyadh regions, required hospital care.

But the third patient, a 67-year-old woman from Riyadh with underlying medical conditions, has been hospitalized after falling ill on July 25, the agency said.

She had no contact with other patients with confirmed MERS or exposure to animals, the WHO reported.
