        The Ministry of Health and Population, Egypt has announced a new case of human infection of H5N1 avian influenza.. The case is a 25 year old female from Bany Suwef Governorate. She was hospitalized on the 21 December and died on 25 December. The source of her exposure is currently under investigation.
        Egypt reported the last confirmed case of H5N1 in July 2007. Of the 39 cases confirmed to date in Egypt, 16 have been fatal.

        Hat-tip to AlohaOR who noticed that the WHO changed its report on Ola Younis. Their original report (above) said that she was hospitalized on Dec 21 as most (all?) of the media reports say. The WHO's new report (below) says that she was admitted to hospital on Dec 23. Friday, Dec 21, might be the day that Ola was admitted to the local hospital in Bani Suwayf, while Sunday, Dec 23, might be the day she was transferred to the hospital in Cairo. Why the WHO leaves out the first hospitalization doesn't make any sense to me. ??

          If the patient waited to be admitted, then the late admission is blaimed for the fatality.

              Yeah, but according to her brother, she didn't wait to get treated. She went to one doctor who diagnosed bronchitis, and then when she didn't get better, she went to another doctor on the 21st. It was that doctor who sent her to Beni Suef hospital. According to her brother, hospital admission or transfer wasn't even on the 23rd. She was already in hospital then -- since the 21st. ??:
