    More people admitted to hospitals over bird flu

    More people have been admitted to hospital over bird flu-like hospitals.

    The government Damitta has taken the brunt of suspected cases. Police continue their crackdowns on back-yard poultry and violating shops.

    In Alexandria, police raided 16 poultry shops and accused workers of violating anti-bird flu measures.

    A government ad hoc committee on bird flu has slapped a six-month closure on infected farms nationwide.

    Reference of the virus in such farms would mean a permanent closure.

    Agriculture Minister Aamin Abaza said the back-yard poultry are the main culprit behind the reemergence of the deadly H5N1 virus.

    The minister said the government takes the matter extra seriously.

    He said the anti-bird flu campaigns are highly focused on the transference of birds from one governorate to another.

    Meanwhile, Health Minister Dr Hatem el-Gabaly warned of any complacency in fighting bird flu.

    He said the ministry has a stockpile of the tamiflu vaccine amounting to 2.5 million.

    The minister put at 46 the number of Egyptians, who had contracted thieveries since it first emerged in Egypt in February of 2006.

    Nineteen people have died of bird flu, including two children, the minister added.

    More infected birds have been culled over the past few days. In Al-Dakhliya, some 1,300 birds have been culled.

    In the southern city of Sohag, up to five million birds have been vaccinated against the virus.
