MERS: [New] Updated Charts

As y’all know, 113 previously unreported MERS cases (and 92 deaths) were announced last month by KSA MOH. The WHO released a DON giving a “big picture” overview on these cases a few weeks ago, but no additional details on a case-by-case basis.

For the time being, the following three figures will be regularly updated…
