    Bird flu cases rise in Egypt

    3rd April 2009

    In Egypt, the number of bird flu cases has risen yet again to 61, making six new human infections over the past month.
    Egypt is the most populous Arab country and the one hit hardest by bird flu outside Asia.

    A two-year-old boy from the province of Bohaira, in the north, is believed to have become infected after coming into contact with poultry carrying the disease.

    The boy was taken to hospital earlier this week after coming down with a fever during a family visit, where he was treated with the drug Tamiflu.

    Even though it is recommended by experts, health authorities in Egypt do not compensate farmers for birds that need to be culled.

    In the last six years, at least 410 people have contracted the H5N1 avian influenza virus.

    The infections have occurred in 15 countries and caused 254 human deaths, and entailed the culling of some 300 million birds in 61 countries.

    The human dead include 23 Egyptians, contact with domestic birds carrying the virus being the most common infection route.

    In Egypt, where approximately 5 million households derive their main source of food and income from domestic poultry, comparatively few people have been infected.

    This recent case comes just over one week after a two-year-old girl in the province of Qena was found to have contracted the virus.

    One day after the girl's symptoms began, she was moved to a hospital specialising in treating the disease and given the drug oseltamivir. Her condition eventually stabilised.

    Cases in Egypt have been sporadic, and just over one third have been fatal.

    However, experts fear that the H5N1 virus could become transmissible from one human to another, bringing devastating consequences worldwide.

    The virus responsible for the Spanish flu pandemic, also known as the 1918 flu pandemic, which killed somewhere between 20 and 50 million people worldwide, was less deadly than a potentially mutated H5N1 bird flu virus.

    Billions of dollars are currently being spent by governments in preparation for a potential outbreak, and at least 17 governments and 12 companies are developing bird flu vaccines.

    Egyptian boy contracts bird flu virus
    -------------------------------------
    A 2-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 Wed 1 Apr 2009.
    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 6 new
    human infections.

    The boy, from the province of Beheira in northern Egypt, was believed
    to have contracted the H5N1 [avian influenza] 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 [30 Mar 2009] 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.

    The above AFP background paragraph is in serious need of an update. In 2009 there have been ten confirmed cases and the number who died this year is ZERO. Moreover 9/10 are toddlers between the ages of 1 1/2 and 2 1/2.

    Beheira toddler contracts bird flu

    By AFP
    First Published: April 2, 2009


    <articlebody>CAIRO: A 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 governorate, 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 Organization (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 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. ?AFP

    H5N1 Toddler Demographic in Egypt Increases Concerns

    Recombinomics Commentary 14:27
    April 2, 2009

    The most recent confirmed H5N1 case in Egypt was the ninth toddler this year, once again highlighting the changing demographic. H5N1 cases have been reported in Egypt since 2006 and early cases were largely females that were teenagers or young adults, due to their close contact with poultry.

    However, this year there has only been one confirmed adult case (38F), who quickly recovered and was only symptomatic for four days. The other nine cases were toddlers between the ages of 1 &#189; and 2 &#189;, which has not been previously reported. In the 51 confirmed cases between 2006 and 2008, there were only 6 toddlers and the rate for each year was close to 10&#37;. In contrast, the toddler rate for 2009 has jumped to 90% and most of these cases have been mild and were widely distributed (see updated map).

    This changing demographic is not due to a dramatic change in poultry cases. Although the reports to OIE have become less frequent because Egypt had declared endemic H5N1 which only requires reports every 6 months. However, local detailed reports of poultry H5N1 outbreaks indicate that new outbreaks are confirmed almost daily. These outbreaks are largely backyard flocks and include birds that have and have not been vaccinated. H5N1 deaths in small flocks may be discarded or eaten and not reported, so the exposure to H5N1 in birds is markedly higher than confirmed outbreaks.

    However, in spite of this high exposure in 2009, there have been no confirmed teenagers or young adult H5N1 cases. Similarly, in the spring of 2007 there was a spike in cases, but most of those patients were children. Those cases were also mild, raising concerns that the number of H5N1 was markedly higher than reported, because most cases would present as seasonal flu. Similarly, H5N1 testing was largely limited to patients who had a history of contact with poultry, which would lead to silent human to human transmission of mild cases. In 2009, there also have been no confirmed cases in children. The oldest non-adult was 2 &#189;.

    This new demographic, which largely limits confirmed cases to toddlers, raises concerns that prior outbreaks were linked to a significant exposure of these earlier populations to H5N1, leading to protective immunity which limited confirmed cases.

    In contrast, the toddlers would not have had exposure to the earlier outbreaks and therefore would lack the protective immunity.

    Further analysis of this new demographic would be useful. If the lack of confirmed cases in female teenagers or young adults is due to protective immunity, this group should have low levels of H5N1 antibodies.

    A comprehensive screening of this demographic would be useful.

    Reporter: David Mark

    MARK COLVIN: A two-year-old Egyptian boy has caught the virulent H5N1 bird flu virus. He's the tenth person to contract the disease in Egypt this year.

    Researchers have described the spate of new outbreaks in Egypt and in China as worrying. The number of cases appeared to have peaked three years ago but these outbreaks seem to buck that trend.

    David Mark reports.

    DAVID MARK: Egypt is the new ground zero for bird flu. The two-year-old boy is the sixth Egyptian to get the disease in the past month.

    Professor Anne Kelso is the director of the WHO collaborating centre for Influenza in Melbourne.

    ANNE KELSO: The WHO is reporting cases and deaths at the moment in China, Egypt and Vietnam. I think particularly worrying are the number of cases in China, which are scattered throughout different provinces.

    DAVID MARK: The avian influenza of H5N1 virus first jumped from birds to humans in 2003. The number of cases grew steadily. In 2006 115 people in nine countries caught the disease; 79 of them died. Bird flu was a big story.

    (Montage of archival stories)

    REPORTER: China says it's made the first discovery of a deadly flu?

    REPORTER 2: The extremely infectious avian influenza?

    REPORTER 3: The World Health Organisation says international?

    REPORTER 4: The Chinese Ministry of Agriculture last night confirmed that?

    DAVID MARK: Since then the numbers of cases and deaths from bird flu has been steadily declining.

    ANNE KELSO: It's interesting because the virus, or at least I should call it a family of viruses is still spreading very widely throughout the world and there are many poultry outbreaks still occurring in many countries of the world.

    ALAN HAMPSON: Well, it certainly hasn't gone away and I think there's probably a degree of media fatigue about the whole thing.

    DAVID MARK: Dr Alan Hampson is the chair of the Australian Influenza Specialist Group. As he explains, the danger with bird flu is that it could mutate.

    If the virus could jump from human to human, the chances of a deadly pandemic increase greatly.

    ALAN HAMPSON: I certainly wouldn't write this virus off. I think if it does acquire, if it can acquire that potential, then the longer that it's there the more human cases we see, then the chances are continuing to grow that it will actually adapt.

    DAVID MARK: The good news is that it hasn't happened yet. While 256 six people have died from the disease, that number pales in comparison to a possible pandemic.

    Tens of millions died in the 1918 Spanish flu outbreak.

    Some people have suggested that the fact avian influenza hasn't mutated in the past six years, mean that it won't.

    Dr Hampson and Professor Kelso disagree:

    ALAN HAMPSON: There's no inherent reason in the virus that we've been able to date that would suggest that it can't adapt to humans.

    ANNE KELSO: It hasn't yet undergone the mutation that would make it easily transmissible. Maybe there's some reason; maybe there's some property of the virus that means it's not particularly prone to undergoing those mutations, but I don't know of any scientific evidence for that.

    And so we simply have to assume that there's still some possibility, even if it's small, that that virus could cause a pandemic.

    DAVID MARK: The years without a pandemic have bought time. Professor Kelso says a huge amount of progress has been made into researching the H5N1 virus and possible vaccines.

    ANNE KELSO: So that if one has a vaccine for one influenza virus the person who's vaccinated will have some degree of protection against quite different influenza viruses.

    DAVID MARK: A key to the research is countries sharing information. But Professor Kelso is concerned that one country, Indonesia, isn't reporting cases.

    Crucially, Indonesia is the country where the virus is mostly widely spread among flocks of poultry and where the human death toll far of 115 far exceeds any other country.

    ANNE KELSO: Because they're not sharing viruses with WHO it's harder for the rest of the world to assist or to help to monitor how those viruses are changing. So, yes, we're concerned about Indonesia.

    DAVID MARK: Avian influenza may no longer be a sexy story, but those working in the field argue governments around the world can't afford to assume the danger from this disease is over.

    MARK COLVIN: David Mark.

    أعلنت وزارة الصحة، أمس، الإصابة البشرية رقم ٦١ بمرض &#171;أنفلونزا الطيور&#187; لطفل يدعى محمد الشحات محمد &#171;سنتان&#187; من البحيرة كما أكدت الوزارة أنها عزلت أكثر من ٦٣٣٧ مواطناً للاشتباه فى إصابتهم بالمرض، منذ ظهوره فى مصر،

    ولفتت الوزارة إلى تحذيرات منظمة الصحة العالمية بخطر تحول المرض إلى وباء متوطن فى مصر. كما كشف التقرير، الذى أعدته إدارة مكافحة الأمراض المعدية بالوزارة، عن ارتفاع الحالات البشرية التى تم عزلها فى جميع المستشفيات إلى أكثر من ٢٣٣٧، مقارنة بالفترة نفسها من العام الماضى.

    وقال د. عبدالرحمن شاهين، المتحدث الرسمى باسم الوزارة، إن إجمالى عدد الحالات البشرية، التى أصيبت بالمرض منذ فبراير ٢٠٠٦ وحتى اليوم، بلغ ٦٠ حالة بشرية، توفى منها ٢٣ حالة وتم شفاء ٣٥ حالة وتوجد حالتان بالمستشفى تتلقيان العلاج،

    مشيراً إلى أن أكثر المحافظات جاءت بها حالات إيجابية هى محافظة المنوفية بـ ٧ حالات تلتها كل من الفيوم وقنا بـ ٦ حالات و٥ حالات بكل من المنيا والقليوبية والغربية و٣ حالات بمحافظات القاهرة وأسوان والدقهلية وكفر الشيخ وحالتين بكل من محافظات بنى سويف وأسيوط وسوهاج ودمياط والشرقية وحالة إصابة واحدة بكل من الإسكندرية والسويس والبحيرة و٦ أكتوبر، وجاءت الجيزة والأقصر والإسماعيلية وبورسعيد ومطروح والوادى الجديد والبحر الأحمر وشمال وجنوب سيناء وحلوان لتكون خالية من أى إصابات إيجابية بالمرض،

    لافتاً إلى أن &#171;نسبة الشفاء فى مصر أكبر دليل على نجاحنا فى مواجهة المرض&#187;، وأضاف أن الوزارة أعدت خطة قومية متكاملة لمواجهة أى تحور فى الفيروس وانتشاره بين البشر،

    كما تم إجراء نوع من المحاكاة لهذه الخطة وإعداد السيناريو الخاص بذلك، لافتاً إلى أن معامل &#171;نمرو ٣&#187; تشترك فى فحص بعض العينات الخاصة بالحالات المصابة أو المشتبه فى إصابتها، بالإضافة إلى تحريك فريق مركزى بالأجهزة المعملية لمتابعة الموقف بالمنطقة التى ظهر بها الفيروس.

    H5N1 False Negatives in Egypt Raise Serious Concerns

    Recombinomics Commentary 20:31
    April 2, 2009

    He explained that the process of epidemiological monitoring of infection of human disease since the introduction of the disease in Egypt was the most prominent results of isolation of the case until 6337 yesterday on suspicion of being infected with the disease, pointing out that all were negative, and the Cairo governorate came in first place in terms of the number of suspected cases stood at 843, where the situation.

    The above translation describes the hospitalized suspect H5N1 patients that tested negative in Egypt. Since the number of confirmed cases is 61, over 99&#37; of suspect hospitalized patients test negative. Although these negatives may simply signal active testing, the recent concentration of confirmed cases in toddlers raises concerns that the number of true infections in Egypt is orders or magnitude higher than confirmed cases, and the absence of recent confirmed older cases is linked to immunity due to prior exposures to H5N1.

    Although no H5N1 sequences have been released from human cases this season, prior sequences are available for almost all prior confirmed cases. In other countries, such as Indonesia, the vast majority of H5N1 isolates are from fatal cases. Although recovered cases are rare in Indonesia, the number of isolates from survivors is zero, or very close to zero. In contrast, most of the confirmed cases in Egypt are not fatal. In the spring of 2007, 16/17 patients survived, but isolates were obtained from all cases.

    This high isolation rate raises concerns that only patients with high viral loads test PCR positive, which leads to an isolation rate approaching 100% regardless of outcome. Those patients with lower viral loads test negative and therefore virus isolation is not attempted.

    Data supporting the lack of sensitivity in the PCR detection is the Gharbiya cluster, All three cases were fatal, but only two of the three members were PCR positive. The two that were positive were positive twice, once on samples collected prior to the start of Tamiflu treatment, and again in samples collected 48 hours after the start of Tamiflu treatment. The failure to register a PCR positive for the third fatal infections, suggest false negative rates in milder cases may be significant.

    In the past, H5N1 positives were concentrated in young women and girls, which was attributed to poultry contact, which was largely limited to females in Egypt. However, many of the cases in the summer of 2007 were children, and most of those cases were mild.

    Thus, prior to this year two major groups were represented in H5N1 outbreaks. Mild cases with lower viral loads may have tested negative, but may have generated protective immunity.

    Therefore, the current spate of cases is limited to toddlers, who have not been previously exposed to H5N1.

    Agressive antibody testing of prior at risk populations would be useful.

    AIRO (Reuters) - According to MENA news agency on Wednesday that the children in the two-year-old was the bird flu virus to become the No. 61 confirmed cases of illness in the country.

    Egypt witnessed an increase in the number of cases of the disease over the last month, recorded six cases of human infection. And Egypt were the most affected countries the disease outside of Asia.

    The news agency quoted the Middle East, Abdel-Rahman Shahin, spokesman for the Ministry of Health as saying that the boy who belongs to the lake in the northern province of Egypt is believed to be infected (H 5 to 1) after having been directly exposed to poultry infected with the disease.

    The boy admitted to hospital on Monday after suffering a high fever while visiting relatives. And is undergoing treatment with Tamiflu.

    Egypt is one of the few countries where the disease does not compensate farmers for culled poultry, despite the fact that many experts say that the best way to ensure the rapid monitoring of the emergence of the disease.

    Since the 2003 virus has infected at least 410 people in 15 countries and has killed 254 of them. The disease has led to the slaughter of more than 300 million birds in 61 countries in Asia and the Middle East, Africa and Europe.

    He died about 23 Egyptians have died of the virus. And adopt about five million families on the poultry in the backyard, as a major source of food and income.

    Rarely affects virus (H 5 to 1) in humans but experts fear it could mutate into a form that can be transmitted easily between humans, leading to the deaths of millions.
