  • Egypt - H5N1 bird flu human case count December 20, 2014 - Pick a number.....

    The Ministry of Health was announced sure injuring more than 10 cases of bird flu among the people of the province of Minya, since the disease appeared last November, the ministry said it was healing and two died 4 cases. (WHAT?!! s.s)

      I am doing the best I can with the emerging information gathered from reliable sources to compile a case list:

      My list is conservative. I only use hospital announcements, provincial government announcements, central government announcements - and only from proven reliable media sources.
