      I'm thinkin' that first announcement is wrong (or else wildly unofficial) because the announcement came from the Research Institute for Animal Health. Perhaps the person from this institute was quoted incorrectly or misunderstood by the journalist. ?? Maybe they were talking about an outbreak in poultry. ??

              The above translation describes siblings in Gharbiya who are hospitalized and being tested for H5N1. This suspect cluster is almost exactly one year after a cluster was confirmed in Gharbiya. That cluster was the largest to date in Egypt and the H5N1 was Tamiflu resistance (NA N296S) prior to treatment, and had two changes in or near the receptor binding domain V223I and M230I.

              More information of tests of these siblings would be useful.

                The average temperatures in nearby Cairo took about a 10F degree dip starting November 7th.
                Nighttime temperatures consistantly dipped below 60F degrees starting November 23rd.
                Daytime temperatures are now mostly below 70F.

                This may be the temperature dip referred to by WHO officials.
