A study published yesterday in Clinical Infectious Diseases described 5 cases of the disease in pregnant women,painting a grim picture of maternal and fetal outcomes.See CIDRAP and read the article titled " As more Saudi MERS noted, study details risks in pregnant patients"
Just a quick note. On June 20th I posted that a new clade of MERS was discover in Saudi Arabia in 2015 and the virus continues to circulate. So, yes the Saidi's are concerned and rightly so. The MERS virus appears to continue mutating and eventually the Saudi government will need to address the problem.
