Default Spain - Coronavirus (NCoV) - Spain tests 2nd probable case

Snip from article by Helen Banswell

Kuwait joins countries with MERS infections; Spain tests 2nd probable case

November 18, 2013

Health officials in Spain have confirmed they have found a second probable case of the new disease, in a woman who attended the Hajj in Saudi Arabia in October.

The press office of Spain's ministry of health said the woman travelled to and from Saudi Arabia with Spain's other probable MERS case. The two women shared sleeping quarters during the trip.

"There is not enough evidence to conclude if there has been person-to-person spread from the first to the second case, or if both cases have been infected from a common source," the ministry said in an email Monday.

The two women have recovered and have been discharged from hospital, the ministry said. Authorities have looked to see if the women infected others, either on the plane on which they journeyed back to Spain or among their contacts in the country. But to date everyone checked has tested negative.

At this point, the two women are classified as probable cases. While they tested positive for the MERS coronavirus, the WHO case definition for confirmed cases requires additional testing.

Spanish authorities, who last week announced they had found the country's first case of MERS, are now awaiting the results of those confirmatory tests.

As of this time there is nothing about a 2nd probable case on the Ministry of Health site:

Default Re: Coronavirus (NCoV) - Spain tests 2nd probable case

This situation rensemble closely that we saw in Italy this spring, when after the confirmation of an index Jordanian patient, two more cases were detected.

Unfortunately, laboratory investigations failed both to confirm these two secondary cases (because the WHO procedure was not followed) and the virus could not be isolated and sequenced. The cases remained thus only 'probable'.

It is clear that there are some issues in laboratory testing procedures that need to be resolved in order to detect prompty all possible cases before community outbreaks will happen. GM
