MANILA- Another Filipino in Saudi Arabia has been infected with the deadly Middle East Coronavirus, according to the Department of Foreign Affairs.

The Filipino man is currently receiving treatment in a Riyadh hospital.

“It was the wife who first got MERS and she was confined in a hospital and she got well. When she returned home, after a few days, the husband got infected,” DFA spokesman Charles Jose told state-news agency PNA.

MERS-COV has already killed 10 overseas Filipino workers based in Middle East since 2013.
