    This envisages all the scientific community in the world for fear of occurrence, but it did not happen in Egypt or in any other country in the world so far. Said that the total number of human cases that have been hit by the disease, including 39 cases cured 23 cases of which 16 died and 11 cases in the governorate of Cairo and one case in Giza and the situation in the province of Fayoum and Minya governorate case and another in the city of Luxor and the number of patients who have been isolated by suspicion of the disease was even yesterday in the 3723 case all the districts and the results of analysis were negative in full.

    The Ministry of Health and Population is an important fact that the virus is still endemic in Egypt has been eliminated so far, and therefore must continue to take precautionary measures and preventive previously announced by the Ministry of Health and Population, issued by the decisions of the Supreme Committee for the control of avian influenza.
