    7 March 2011 - The Ministry of Health of Egypt has announced two new confirmed cases of human infection with avian influenza A (H5N1) virus.
    The first case is a 32 year old female from Sharkia Governorate. She developed symptoms on 10 February and was hospitalized on 14 February. She is in a critical condition.


    The second case is a two year old male from Kafr Elsheikh Governorate. He developed symptoms on 18 February and was hospitalized on 20 February. He is under treatment and is in a good general condition.


    Investigations into the source of infection indicate that the two cases had exposure to poultry suspected to have avian influenza.

          The two cases reported by WHO today (#126 and #127 in post 1) were previously reported by FAO on March 2. (hat tip to CopitoSP) Case #128 from Gharbia reported in the table posted by IOH above appears to be new case. And there seems to be at least one more human case from Dakahlia as noted in a post by IOH today.

          We don't know about the onset date for the individual from Gharbia, but the most recent onset date is February 24 for the individual in Dakahlia. That was 12 days ago. The MOH might still be processing more samples from suspected cases with onset dates since then.
