          H5N1 Spread into Two More Nile Delta Governorates

          Recombinomics Commentary 12:18
          December 27, 2007

          Three bird flu cases were detected in Ashmoon, Menoufiyah, according to reports reaching security head Maj. Gen. Mohamed Tolba.

          Veterinary Directorate executed Bakulaiobh 9 thousand chickens layer farm Bkivr thanked emerged after the avian influenza virus .. Al-Mukhtar said Abed Assistant Secretary General of the Directorate that Qaliubia governorate veterinary medicine discovered the existence of injuries positive for avian influenza virus

          The above translations describe new H5N1 outbreaks in Al Minufiyah and Al Qalyubia governorates (see satellite map of the above outbreaks and all OIE reported outbreaks since July 1, 2007, including first confirmed case (25F) in Beni Suef this season here). These outbreaks are in addition to Nile Delta outbreaks in Ash Sharqiyah and Al Gharbiyah reported earlier this month. The outbreaks included backyard holdings as well as a farm with 9000 layer chickens. Previously, Egypt filed OIE reports of 922 outbreaks (see satellite maps here here here here here), which also detailed an extensive vaccination campaign. The above outbreaks this month developed in spite of the vaccination campaign. The first fatal case of this season was also confirmed this week.

          Sequences from human and poultry outbreaks identified a number of regional markers found in isolates from Egypt, Israel, Gaza, and Djibouti. However, recent outbreaks in Europe, as well as an earlier outbreak in Kuwait, were due to the Uva Lake strain, which is clade 2.2, but distinct from the earlier isolates in Egypt.

          Sequence data on the recent outbreaks, including the first human case, would be useful.

                        The above translations describe a dramatic rise in reported outbreaks of H5N1. It was found on farms in three governorates as well as nine backyard farms, primarily in the Nile Delta (see satellite map). These increases are in spite of the aggressive vaccination program in Egypt.

                        The outbreaks help explain the three confirmed H5N1 cases in two days. The WHO situation update for Egypt indicated on of the new cases was in critical condition, while the second case was stable in the ICU. These two cases, coupled with the earlier fatality suggest a more aggressive H5N1 is circulating, as was seen twelve months ago when the first seven confirmed cases died.

                        Detail on the sequences from these new outbreaks would be useful.

                          Mismatch, failure to vaccinate poultry that caused infections, or ???

                          It would be good if officials included an analysis of why the vaccination program didn't impact cases that caused infections.

                            For one thing, I don't think they managed to vaccinate all the poultry in the country. They may have an aggressive vaccination campaign, but it's not comprehensive. The recent news stories about the vaccination program refer to having 85 or 90 million doses (see here and here) -- but if this FAO report is right, there is a standing population of poultry in Egypt at any given time of ca. 218,000,000+ poultry (no one really knows for sure 'cause the number of backyard birds is a guesstimate).

                            Regarding mismatch -- I dunno. They did import a lot of their poultry vaccines from China. ??
