      However, an immunological explanation of some sort is appealing because toddlers combine mobility/access to H5N1 with a relatively naive immune system.
      Is it likely maternal antibodies could be protecting the under 1.5 age group?

          Interesting comment! Passive immunity from the mother wanes by approximately 12 months.

          As babies are not mobile during at least 1/2 of their first year, it may be difficult to differentiate the possible benefit of passive immunity from the protective effect of the reduced opportunities for infant H5N1 exposure.

                        Egyptian toddler contracts bird flu
                        59 minutes ago

                        CAIRO (AFP) ? An Egyptian toddler has contracted bird flu, the 61th recorded case since the first outbreak of the disease in the country in 2006, state-news agency MENA reported on Wednesday.

                        The two-year-old was taken to hospital with a fever on Monday in Beheira governate, health ministry spokesman Abdel Rahman Shahin said, quoted by MENA. He had been exposed to dead fowl thought to have been infected with the virus.


                        Twenty-three people have died of bird flu in Egypt. Most of the victims have been young girls or women, who are generally in charge of looking after poultry in rural areas.

                        The World Health Organisation (WHO) called last month for an investigation into why many of the victims have been young children.

                        Egypt hosted an international conference on bird flu in October, when Washington pledged an additional 320 million dollars to the fight against the disease amid fears it may yet escalate into a global pandemic.

                        The H5N1 strain of the virus that is most dangerous to humans first emerged in Asia in 2003 and has since caused nearly 250 deaths, according to WHO figures.

                        Scientists fear that a mutation of the bird flu virus resulting in a strain easily transmitted among humans could create a pandemic, potentially affecting up to one-fifth of the world's population.

                          Egyptian boy contracts bird flu virus: agency

                          25 mins ago
                          CAIRO (Reuters) – A two-year-old Egyptian boy has contracted the highly pathogenic bird flu virus, bringing to 61 the number of confirmed cases in the most populous Arab country, state news agency MENA said on Wednesday.
                          Egypt, hit harder by bird flu than any other country outside of Asia, has seen an upswing in bird flu cases over the past month, with six new human infections.
                          The boy, from the province of Beheira in northern Egypt, was believed to have contracted the H5N1 virus after coming into contact with infected birds, MENA quoted health ministry spokesman Abdel Rahman Shahine as saying.
                          The boy was taken to hospital on Monday after he came down with a high fever while visiting extended family in another province. He was being treated with the antiviral drug Tamiflu.
                          Egypt is one of the few countries affected by bird flu that does not compensate farmers when poultry is destroyed, though many experts say this is the best way to ensure rapid detection of new outbreaks.
                          Since 2003, the H5N1 avian influenza virus has infected at least 410 people in 15 countries and killed 254 of them. It has killed or forced the culling of more than 300 million birds in 61 countries in Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Europe.
                          Some 23 Egyptians have died after contracting the virus, most after coming into contact with infected domestic birds in a country where roughly 5 million households depend on domestically raised poultry as a main source of food and income.
                          While H5N1 rarely infects people, experts fear it could mutate into a form that people could easily pass to one another, sparking a pandemic that could kill millions.
