[I am wondering if there is an as yet undefined outbreak of MERS-CoV infection ongoing in Buraidah, Al Qasim region. This is now the 3rd case reported from Buraidah in 4 days, and the 4th case reported in Al Qasim in 4 days. In this case, there is clear mention of the classification of the case -- primary vs secondary -- being still under investigation.

We await further information when available.
