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.
