    • Village: El Zaraby
    • Event summary: Female, 16 years old, began experiencing symptoms December 8. Admitted in Assiut University Hospital December 13 under ventilator in critical condition. Died December 15. This was Egypt's 51st human infection.
    • Findings of the General Organization for Veterinary Services (GOVS) Epidemiology Unit:
    • Among homes neighboring the girl's home, there had been a high mortality and flu-like symptoms for several weeks, with dead birds discarded in a drainage ditch that passes by the girl's home. The girl's family said it had recently purchased, slaughtered, and eaten two ducks; according to neighbors, one of the ducks died and the family quickly slaughtered the second. When the girl began to have trouble breathing, she was mistakenly diagnosed at a local hospital as having normal influenza.
    • Medical response: Family members said the deceased began to suffer a headache and fever on December 7, 2008. When she developed signs of respiratory distress, she was taken to a hospital Dec. 8, 2008. Only one doctor was present to respond, diagnosing the case as normal flu and giving the patient some medications. The family went to another hospital on Dec. 11, 2008 after severe complications, bloody sputum.
    • Condition of the home: The deceased’s home is one of a small number of scattered houses at a far side of the village surrounded mostly by agricultural land. An agricultural drainage canal passes in front of the house.
      • There were conflicting accounts on whether the deceased's family raised poultry. <!-- (The deceased&rsquo;s family told GOVS that poultry had not been kept at the home for six months. Neighbors confirmed this, and local veterinary officers said the house had no signs of keeping poultry. However, a report by the Ministry of Health and Population stated that the deceased's family raised chicken and ducks.) --> Family members told GOVS that the girl had not left the home or visited anyone in the recent period.
      • Family members said they bought two adult ducks from a market two months earlier, slaughtered and ate them directly. Neighbors said the family bought two ducks for rearing; that one of the ducks died, and the other was quickly slaughtered, producing blackish blood.

    • Condition of neighboring homes: Nearby neighbors keep poultry. Sampling was conducted by MALR/GOVS, MALR Central Lab, local veterinary preventive medicine specialists and a local lab team. Samples taken were nine tracheal swabs and nine cloacal swabs from ducks only.
      • In general, most of houses said that in the last month and a half to two months, there was a high mortality approaching 100 percent in the kept poultry with signs of cyanosis of the head, whitish diarrhea and nasal discharge.
      • As a general practice, dead birds are disposed of by being thrown in the drainage canal.
      • Most of sampled houses were vaccinated in the last vaccination campaign.

    • Local markets: There are two markets, a small market on Thursdays 3 km from the deceased's house, and a big market most weekdays in the district seat. A number of peddlers collect birds from the houses to sell at the markets – one or two peddlers pass every day. Some peddlers sell two-week-old chicks to the houses to raise.
    • Actions taken by the local veterinary directorate: Massive vaccinations in the surrounding houses; disinfection for the surrounding houses; culling of 41 birds in district market.

                Two Egyptian boys contract bird flu - agency
                20 May 2009 15:58:06 GMT
                Source: Reuters
                CAIRO, May 20 (Reuters) - Two Egyptian boys have contracted the highly pathogenic H5N1 bird flu virus, bringing the total number of cases in the most populous Arab country to 74, state news agency MENA said on Wednesday.

                Egypt, hit harder by bird flu than any other country outside Asia, has seen a surge in cases in recent weeks with 14 new human infections and four deaths reported since April 1 -- more than the country saw in all of 2008.

                The children -- a 4-year-old boy from Daqahlia in the Nile Delta and a 3-year-old boy from Sohag in the south -- were admitted to hospital with high fever and were in a stable condition after being treated with Tamiflu, MENA said.

                It quoted a health ministry spokesman as saying that both boys had been in contact with birds suspected of being infected with the disease.

                The new infections came just days after a 4-year-old girl died of the virus on Monday. Overall, 27 Egyptians have died after contracting the virus.

                Most Egyptians who contracted the disease fell ill after coming 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.

                While the H5N1 virus only rarely infects people, experts fear it could mutate into a form that humans could easily pass to one another, sparking a pandemic that could kill millions. (Writing by Alastair Sharp; editing by Philippa Fletcher)

                  This may not be an actual increase of cases, but increased surveillance instead. We do not know which it is.

                            CAIRO, May 26 (Reuters) - Two four-year-old Egyptian children have contracted the highly pathogenic H5N1 bird flu virus, raising to 76 the number of cases reported in Egypt, the state news agency MENA reported on Tuesday.

                            Egypt has been hit harder by bird flu than any other country outside Asia and has seen a surge of cases in recent weeks.

                            The children, a boy and girl, were from different areas of Sharkiya province in the Nile Delta region. Both fell ill after coming into contact with birds with the virus.

                            The avian flu virus rarely infects people, but experts say they fear it could mutate into a form that humans could easily pass to one another, sparking a pandemic.

                            Most of those infected have previously been in contact with infected domestic birds in a country where 5 million households raise poultry as a significant source of food and income.

                            Since 2003, the H5N1 virus has infected more than 400 people in 15 countries and killed more than 250. It has killed or forced the culling of more than 300 million birds in 61 countries in Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Europe. (
