      Influenza at the Human-Animal Interface, monthly risk assessment summary, 2 October 2014

      Human infection with avian influenza A(H5N1) viruses

      From 2003 through 2 October 2014, 668 laboratory-confirmed human cases of avian influenza A(H5N1) virus infection have been officially reported to WHO from 16 countries. Of these cases, 393 have died.
      Since the last WHO Influenza update on 27 June 2014, one new laboratory-confirmed human case of influenza A(H5N1) virus infection was reported to WHO. The case was reported from Egypt in a 2 ½ - year-old girl from Giza governorate. Identification of such sporadic cases is not unexpected as influenza A(H5N1) viruses are known to be circulating in poultry in the country.
      Overall public health risk assessment for avian influenza A(H5N1) viruses: Whenever influenza viruses are circulating in poultry, sporadic infections or small clusters of human cases are possible, especially in people exposed to infected poultry or contaminated environments. Human infections remain rare and these influenza A(H5N1) viruses do not currently appear to transmit easily among people. As such, the risk of community-level spread of these viruses remains low.

        New case of avian influenza A(H5N1) in Egypt


        8 July 2014 - The Ministry of Health and Population, Egypt recently notified WHO of a new case of human infection from avian influenza A (H5N1).

        The case was a 34-year-old male, a construction worker from the Samallot district in the Menia governorate. He developed symptoms on 15 June 2014 in the form of fever, sore throat, cough and difficulty in breathing. He was admitted to hospital on 22 June 2014 after frequent visits to private physicians with no clinical improvement.

        Naso-pharyngeal specimens were positive at Menia subnational virology laboratory on 24 June 2014, which was later re-confirmed at the Central Public Health Laboratory in Cairo on 25 June 2014 by RT-PCR. The man was referred to Abbaseya Chest Hospital in Cairo on 25 June 2014 in critical condition and later died on 7 July 2014.

        Findings from initial field investigation revealed that the deceased has close contact with sick poultry in a poultry market near his house. Follow up of close contacts of this patient has not revealed any further case with influenza-like symptoms. The local authorities have implemented necessary measures to prevent any further human infection from the poultry market
