Second Netherlands case confirmed

15 May, 2014

Netherlands’ National Public Health Institute says a second case has been diagnosed, one day after the first.  The patients, a man and a woman, are family members who traveled together and shared a room in Saudi Arabia for two weeks.  Officials don’t know if one or both of them picked up the disease at the same location, but one of them did visit a camel farm.  Both individuals have underlying conditions that make them more susceptible to the disease.
