Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Health (MOH) today reported three new MERS-CoV cases, part of an ongoing increase that began in October, and new research reports reveal more information about the presence of antibodies to the virus beyond Saudi Arabia in both people and camels.

The new MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus) illnesses lift Saudi Arabia’s number of cases for November to 5. The brisk pace of infections so far this month follows 14 reported for October, which was up sharply from 4 in September.
