The new deaths, including one man and two women, were reported in Jeddah.

Two of the new cases were of women in their fifties and registered in Riyadh, and the third one is a man in his sixties in Medina, who was receiving treatment at the ICU.

Meanwhile, one infected woman in her forties fully recovered and was discharged from a government hospital in Riyadh on Monday.

Saudi Arabia is seriously fighting the infection and has established three medical centres in the country that are dedicated to receive only MERS coronavirus cases. More centres will be opened soon.

The first such case was diagnosed in 2012. Despite the registering of new cases on a daily basis, the World Health Organisation has not yet declared the infection as epidemic.
