    • Bird flu blamed in Egypt child's death

      Six-year-old Ali died last week, and health workers don't know the source of his disease. Bird flu has been blamed in the deaths of 26 people in Egypt since 2006, the most of any nation outside Asia.
      By Jeffrey Fleishman
      April 30, 2009
      Reporting from Cairo -- Beyond smokestacks and whipped donkeys, past fish curled on dirty ice and sparrows skimming laundry hanging in alleys, the death of 6-year-old Ali Mohammed Ali brought mystery, health inspectors and truckloads of police to a poor Cairo neighborhood.

      Ali, a first-grader and computer wizard from Shubra el Kheima, died last week in a hospital, his lungs full of fluid, a stent in his chest. Health officials say he had bird flu, but they can't pinpoint where he picked it up: The market, the school, on the rooftops with the pigeon keepers or on a recent trip to his grandfather's village in the Nile Delta?


      Nobody knows. Homes and classrooms have been disinfected, neighborhood poultry has been confiscated and culled, and the man splitting chicken breasts with a machete next to the baker keeps watch for police in case he has to disappear in a hurry. There is alarm and nonchalance, talk of a health epidemic, grumbles of conspiracy.

      "The Health Ministry came. They checked our flat, they took our blood. They tested everyone in this building for infection," said Ali's mother, Aleya Ismail. "But still they don't know how it got into my son. Where can I raise poultry here? Under the bed? How could this virus have found him?"

      Egypt has had 65 cases of bird flu, including 26 deaths, since 2006 -- the highest national toll outside Asia, where the virus, designated as H5N1, was believed to have first appeared in humans in 1997.

          Egyptian girl contracts bird flu, 69th case (AlertNet) [INDENT]Egyptian girl contracts bird flu, 69th case

          10 May 2009 20:12:51 GMT
          Source: Reuters
          CAIRO, May 10 (Reuters) -

          A five-year-old Egyptian girl has contracted the highly pathogenic bird flu virus after coming into contact with infected birds, the state news agency MENA reported on Sunday.


          The case brings to 69 the number of people confirmed to have contracted the H5N1 avian influenza virus in Egypt, which has been hit harder than any another country outside Asia.

          While the avian influenza virus rarely infects people, experts say they fear it could mutate into a form people could easily pass to one another, sparking a pandemic that could kill millions.

          MENA, citing the Health Ministry, said the girl from Sohag province was admitted to hospital on Saturday. It said she was being treated with the anti-viral drug Tamiflu and was in a stable condition.

          Some 26 Egyptians have died after contracting the virus.

          Most of those infected had come into contact with infected domestic birds in a country where roughly 5 million households depend on domestically raised poultry as a significant source of food and income.

          Last month, Egypt ordered the culling of all the country's 300,000 to 400,000 pigs as a precaution against the new H1N1 influenza strain, also known as swine flu.

          The World Health Organisation on Sunday reported 4,379 people in 29 countries have been infected by the new virus. No cases have been reported in Egypt.

                I wonder if Egypt increased their surveillance since March. The jump of confirmed cases from Jan/Feb to March is quite large.

                  NAMRU-3: Avian Flu in Egypt Reached High Risk Stage
                  By Mohamed Talaat el-Hawari 11/ 5/ 2009

                  The Map

                  A report issued by the Third Medical Research Unit of the US navy (NAMRU-3) said Egypt is the most country infected with avian flu outside of Asia, despite control measures.

                  The report, of which Al-Masry Al-Youm got a copy, said 71% of the infected patients received medical treatment within 3 days of the symptoms.

                  It also said the government sent NAMRU-3 941 samples in February and March, of which 934 samples were under the Seasonal Influenza Control Program, and 7 samples to be examined for (H5 N1) and (HPAI).

                  It pointed out that among the 63 confirmed cases recorded in Egypt between March 2006 and March 2009, there were 23 serious infections.

                  The report used the term 'epidemic curve' when it addressed the evolution of the disease in Egypt, where the number jumped from 18 cases in 2006 to 12 cases in the first quarter of this year alone.

                  It revealed that infections have increased among children less than 5 years of age and females between 10 and 39 years, pointing out that female infection reached 60%, a rate that is much greater than the global rates.

                  It said Egypt ranked third in the global infection rate with a 14% infection rate as registered by the World Health Organization in March. Indonesia is ranked first with 34% and Vietnam second with 26%.

                  The report also said the infection covered all of Egypt in 2007, when it was only in the Delta in 2006.

                      Dr. Niman, [from your commentary]. Does this also apply to Indonesia:

                      Seasonal H1N1 and H3N2, as well as swine H1N1 and avian H5N1 will all give a positive on an influenza A test. Swine H1N1 and avian H5N1 however, will not sub-type with standard reagents, which are directed against human seasonal flu.

                      These swine H1N1 isolates are confirmed with additional tests that are specific for swine H1N1. However, H5N1 will also test negative on the swine H1N1 test, which will signal another serotype (or evolution of the swine H1N1) and require additional testing.

                          Detection bias and poor diagnostic sensitivity are both serious concerns now that reports of afebrile Novel A/H1N1 infections are suggested in Mexico and H5N1 infections are increasingly reported among those without poultry contact.

                            5/13/2009 11:57:00 PM

                            القاهرة - محرر مصراوى - تأكدت مساء الأربعاء الإصابة رقم 70 بمرض أنفلونزا الطيور لطفل عمره 4 سنوات من كفر صقر محافظة الشرقية وحالته جيده ومستقرة.

                            CAIRO - Editor Masrawy - confirmed on Wednesday No. 70 of infection with avian influenza for children aged 4 years from the eastern province of Kafr Saqr and his condition was good and stable.

                            صرح بذلك الدكتور عمرو قنديل وكيل وزارة الصحة للشئون الوقاية ، وقال إن الطفل دخل مستشفى حميات الزقازيق، وهو مصاب بارتفاع في درجة الحرارة ، وظهرت عليه إعراض الاتفلونزا، فتقرر تحويله إلى مستشفى منشية البكري، والتي أثبتت التحليلات إصابته بالمرض نتيجة مخالطته طيور منزلية مصابة، ويتم علاجه بعقار التاميفلو.

                            This was stated by Dr. Amr Kandil and Undersecretary of the Ministry of Health Affairs, prevention, said the boy admitted to the Hospital of Zagazig, with a high temperature, showing symptoms of Alatvlonza, decided to convert it to a hospital in the Tamiflu drug, which analysis has shown a result of the disease usually infected domestic birds, and treated with Tamiflu.

                            وبرغم ان سلالة "اتش 5 ان 1" من فيروس انفلونزا الطيور نادرا ما تصيب البشر يعرب خبراء عن خشيتهم من ان يتحور الى فيروس يمكن ان ينقل العدوى بسهولة من فرد لآخر مما سيؤدي الى تفشي وباء قد يتسبب في مقتل الملايين من الأشخاص.

                            Despite the strain, "said the 5 H 1" of the bird flu virus rarely affects humans express experts fear it could mutate into a virus that can infect easily from person to person, sparking a pandemic could cause the deaths of millions of people.

                            ومعظم المصابين في مصر كانوا على اتصال بطيور محلية مصابة في بلد تعتمد فيه نحو خمسة ملايين أسرة على دواجن تُربى في المنازل كمصدر هام للطعام والدخل.

                            Most people living in Egypt had been in contact with infected domestic birds in a country where the adoption of some five million families on the poultry kept at home as an important source of food and income.

                            وقالت منظمة الصحة العالمية انها تخشى من ان بعض المصريين ربما يحملون فيروس أنفلونزا الطيور دون ان تظهر عليهم أعراضه وهو ما قد يمنح الفيروس فرصة أكبر للتحول الى سلالة تنتشر بسهولة بين البشر.

                            The World Health Organization said it feared that some of the Egyptians may have avian influenza virus without showing any symptoms, which may give the virus a greater chance of turning into a strain easily spread among humans. http://translate.google.com/translat.../news/&prev=_t
