    Re: Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza A(H5N1), Human: Egypt, Menoufia (FAO, December 27 2011): 1 New Case

    So far I do not see anything in the media about this. The Ministry of Health asked reporters a few months ago not to report any health news without their approval. The Minister suffered a heart attack and had heart surgery yesterday.

    I am not sure what effect this will have on health news releases.

      Avian influenza - situation in Egypt - update 60

      5 JANUARY 2012 - The Ministry of Health and Population of Egypt has notified WHO of a case of human infection with avian influenza A (H5N1) virus.‪

      The case is a 42 year-old male from Menofia Governorate. He developed symptoms on 16 December 2011 and was admitted to hospital on 21 December 2011, where he received oseltamivir treatment. He was in critical condition and died on 22 December 2011.

      The case was confirmed by the Central Public Health Laboratories, a National Influenza Centre of the WHO Global Influenza Surveillance Network, on 24 December 2011.

      Investigations into the source of infection indicated that the case had exposure to sick and dead backyard poultry.

      Of the 157 cases confirmed to date in Egypt, 55 have been fatal.
