            Egypt confirms 2 H5N1 cases
            Egypt's health ministry has confirmed two cases of H5N1 avian flu in the northern part of the country, the Egypt Independent reported.

            A 56-year-old woman from Beheira governorate and a 4-year-old child from Damietta governorate are both in critical condition in intensive care units, the story said. Both have received oseltamivir (Tamiflu).

            The cases are the first in the country since April 2013, the story said. Last year the country confirmed four H5N1 cases, three of which were fatal, according to data from the World Health Organization.
            That's a far cry from previous years. Egypt led the world in annual H5N1 cases from 2009 through 2012, with 39, 29, 39, and 11 in those years, respectively.

                Apparently the MoH is not publishing H5N1 status at this time.
