Record Visits at Saudi Health 2015

Record numbers of visitors came to the GV Health stand at the Saudi Health 2015 Expo in Riyadh, the third occasion GV Health have participated in the event. Visitors showed the greatest interest in disinfectants and PPE following the recent rises in cases of MERS-Coronavirus in Saudi Arabia and other Middle Eastern countries.

Middle East Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) has been particularly agressive in Saudi Arabia in 2015. Four new cases, including one health worker, have been reported to the World Health Organisation by the Saudi MoH in May alone. Cases have also been reported recently in Oman, Qatar and the UAE and in South Korea a health worker who had recently returned from the Middle East has also become infected.
