Sustained community spread of SARS2 coronavirus is likely

A Tunisian man has died of SARS2 coronavirus. He had traveled to Saudi Arabia and Qatar. We don’t know where he was infected. However, unless he was infected in a hospital in Al-Ahsa Saudi Arabia, the only currently publicised source of SARS2, the Tunisian visitor was almost certainly infected in a community setting.

A French man was infected by SARS2 while in Dubai in early April. He was also most likely infected in a community setting.

The most likely explanation for the observed data, infection of two tourists in two different countries in the Middle East over a month apart, is sustained spread in a community setting.

  1. Makes three now. A man in Italy and his grandson with a cough….
    If we know the number of visitors a month to Europe and the inhabitants of the middle east region we can soon make some calculations.
