Two patients, who were hospitalized over the suspicion of being infected with a  new coronavirus, have died in Saudi Arabia. Thus, the total number of deaths from the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) in the country has reached 38.

The number of patients has increased to 65 people, according to the Ministry of Health of the Kingdom.
