Another Fatal Beta2c Coronavirus Case 39M Saudi Arabia
Recombinomics Commentary 23:55
March 12, 2013

The patient, a 39-year-old male, developed symptoms on 24 February 2013. He was hospitalized on 28 February 2013 and died on 2 March 2013.

The above comments are from the March 12 WHO update.  Earlier media reports on February 27 cited two additional unconfirmed cases, which preceded the hospitalization of the above case.  The three most recent confirmed cases (61F, 69M, 39M) have been fatal in Saudi Arabia, and all but one of the 13 cases since the summer of 2012 have been from Saudi Arabia.

The high case fatality rate indicates the number of novel cornavirus infections is orders of magnitude higher than the confirmed cases, which have lacked detail.  March signals the start of coronavirus season, and more fatal cases are expected in the near term.

Parallels with the 2002/2003 SARS outbreak continue to increase.
