        Re: EGYPT - Poultry H5N1 Outbreaks in Al Minufiyah &amp; Al Qalyubia + OIE Map

        Organizaci&#243;n Mundial de la Salud (OMS) ha anunciado dos nuevos casos de gripe aviar en humanos en Egipto y otro en Pakist&#225;n. Los tres dieron positivo en los an&#225;lisis para detectar la virulenta cepa H5N1 de la infecci&#243;n. Una mujer de 50 a&#241;os, que fue hospitalizada el 24 de diciembre en Egipto se encontraba ayer en estado cr&#237;tico y otra, de 22 a&#241;os, vendedora de pollos, hospitalizada dos d&#237;as despu&#233;s, se recuperaba con cuidados intensivos. Con estos dos nuevos casos la cifra de personas afectadas por el H5N1 en Egipto se eleva a 45, de los que han muerto 16.

        En Islamabad (Pakist&#225;n) al menos una persona dio positivo en los an&#225;lisis de gripe aviar y la OMS intenta determinar si hay m&#225;s contagiados, seg&#250;n inform&#243; la OMS.

Un equipo de esta organizaci&#243;n visit&#243; la semana pasada las zonas afectadas por la infecci&#243;n para investigar si se habr&#237;a producido transmisi&#243;n del H5N1 entre humanos despu&#233;s del supuesto contagio de cinco hermanos. Uno de ellos ha dado positivo en los an&#225;lisis y se han tomado muestras de otro, fallecido.

        This says the 22 year old victim is recuperating in intensive care.
