          H5N1 in Egypt Spreads to Qena

          Recombinomics Commentary 09:03
          December 30, 2007

          Avian influenza attacked more than 8 Egyptian governorates during the Eid al-Adha as appeared several hotbeds infected with H5N1 in the governorates of Menoufiya, East [Ash Sharqiyah] and West [Al Gharbiyah], Qaliubiya, Beni Suef, Qena, Cairo, was the surprise that these cases emerged in the farm, which claimed officials with the Ministry of Agriculture said that it had no hope of avian influenza in return

          The above translation describes the spread of H5N1 in Egypt. Some of these outbreaks may overlap earlier reports, but the list above includes Qena, which extends newly reported outbreaks to the south (see satellite map), where there was a human cluster last season.

          The translation above also notes that H5N1 is again appearing on farms, in spite of a major vaccination program. Although farms were affected at the beginning of 2006, the outbreaks at the end of 2006 and beginning of 2007 were largely confined to backyard holdings.

          The rapid spread to multiple locations, including farms, raises concerns that the Uva Lake strain is moving into Egypt.

          Sequence data on these new outbreaks would be useful

              H5N1 in Egypt Spreads to Farms

              Recombinomics Commentary 09:45
              December 30, 2007

              Amid tightened veterinary and sanitary practices were yesterday executed 60 Bmzrotain A bird in the Eastern province, and had been extracting samples from random estates, the first valley of kings, Abouhmad Center, and the second in Saadat status Bio , after the deaths of large numbers of birds by, and the results were positive sampling disease avian influenza.

              The above translation describes the culling of 60,000 birds in Ash Shariqiyah (see satellite map). It is one of several reports of H5N1 detection in poultry farms in Egypt. Although H5N1 was widespread in early 2006, in late 2006 / early 2007 most reporting was on outbreaks in backyard holdings (see satellite maps here here here here here).

              The movement to farms and backyard holdings, in spite of an extensive vaccination program raises concerns that the Uva Lake strain is moving into Egypt. This strain was not widely reported last season. Although the outbreak at Uva Lake in the summer of 2006 was massive (see satellite map), neither Russia nor Mongolia filed OIE reports on the outbreak. Recently released sequences from the outbreak in South Korea shows that the Uva Lake strain had migrated there last year.

              Reports on the early 2007 outbreak in Kuwait indicate the Uva Lake strain was also there. However, Egypt, like Europe, did not report any H5N1 outbreaks involving the Uva Lake strain.

              However, in the summer of 2007, Uva Lake was detected in wild bird outbreaks in Germany, the Czech Republic, and France. Sequence data was presented for multiple outbreaks in Germany, as well as a fall outbreak in Krasnodar. Recent reports indicate Uva Lake sequences were found in northeastern Germany, suggesting recent outbreaks in Poland are also Uva Lake. Similarly, outbreaks in Rostov on farms near Krasnodar suggest most if not all of the recent outbreaks in Europe and the Middle East involve the Uva Lake strain.

              Sequences data from Egypt would be useful.

                      Three Suspect H5N1 Cases in Nile Delta

                      Recombinomics Commentary 04:11
                      December 31, 2007

                      Detained dietary hospitals in the provinces of Menoufiya, and the lake yesterday, 3 cases infected with symptoms similar to bird flu, in the lake [Ash Sharqiyah] received Maj. Gen. Essam Sheikh, head of security, notification from the hospital salt Damanhour arrival Mohammed Khalil Abdel strong 40 years of Ezbet "Notes" Centre Kom Hamada suffer symptoms similar to bird flu, and send a sample of his blood for the central factor.

                      In Menoufiya, said Undersecretary of the Ministry of Health: The Hospital Dietetic Shebin Mound detained on suspicion of two children injured bird flu are: Nader Said Babylonian 5 years from the village "Alaptanon", the paper Ahmad Abdulmohsen 6 years from the village "Kafr Tunbdi" at the centre of Shebin Mound, pointing out that the blood samples sent to laboratories competent children.

                      The above translation describes three hospitalized patents undergoing testing for bird flu in the Nile Delta. Although the number of suspect cases has been high previously, the confirmation of four H5N1 cases in the past week has increased the likelihood that the suspect cases will prove to be true positives. In addition the spike in the number of H5N1 confirmed and bird deaths on backyard and commercial holdings increases the likelihood of an explosion of human cases.

                      The release of sequences from the human and chicken sequences from the recent human and poultry outbreaks would be useful.

                          Egypt culls some 1,600 birds suspected of having avian influenza

                          CAIRO, Jan. 1 (Xinhua) -- Egypt has culled 1,599 domestic poultry suspected of contracting bird flu in its latest efforts to prevent further spread of the fatal disease in the populous Middle East and North Africa country, the official MENA news agency reported Tuesday.

                          The culling of birds was carried out in four governorates, namely Cairo, Qalyubiya, Minufiya and Gharbiya, chairman of the General Authority for Veterinary Services Hamid Samaha was quoted as saying.

                          Under the supervision of a committee, the dead poultry was buried deep between two layers of white lime, said Samaha.

                          The preventive medicine department has launched a campaign to vaccinate live poultry against the deadly H5N1 strain of bird flu in the country, with the participation of 3,000 veterinarians, assistants and drivers.

                          Some 85 million doses of anti-bird flu vaccines were secured, added Samaha.

                          The anti-bird flu measures were taken as four more Egyptian people died of the fatal disease in less than a week in late December, 2007.

                          According to media statistics, Egypt has reported a total of 43human cases, including 19 deaths, up to now since it detected its first H5N1 virus in dead poultry in February 2006 and the first human case in March of the same year.
