  • Egypt - MoH announces 4 new bird flu H5N1 cases - February 15, 2015

    Health: The death of a woman and injuring three cases of avian influenza virus


    Sunday 15 / February / 2015 - 16:12

    tFaten Khedive

    The Ministry of Health and Population, injuring three confirmed cases of virus-bird flu to

    a man at the age of 32 years from the governorate of Cairo, and is still under treatment hospital Abbasid,

    and the old man 28 years of Dakahlia is still under treatment hospital issued Mansoura,

    as well as old girl 4.5-year-old from Cairo Governorate and is still under hospital Tamiflu drug treatment.

    announced a healing case of a woman, aged 35, from the province of Dakahlia, and

    the death of a confirmed case of a girl at the age of 22 years of Fayoum governorate.


    The Ministry of Health calls citizens who deal with poultry to go immediately to the nearest to receive health service hospital in the case of the appearance of flu symptoms on them since receiving infected bird flu drug Tamiflu within the first 24 hours of the onset of symptoms increases the cure rates of disease and reduces mortality rates. The ministry advises citizens who deal with poultry to exercise caution and prudence when dealing with birds especially, which shows the symptoms and the need to take preventive measures to prevent infection, such as cover your mouth and nose when dealing with poultry, wash your hands with soap and water after handling birds and not to take children to places of birds breeding or slaughter, as well as the need to separate the birds from the living quarters.

    I believe this case is including in the FAO report of February 12 since she is "healed" and is, therefore a previously known case:

    healing case of a woman, aged 35, from the province of Dakahlia

    47) Egypt - 1 case in Dakhalia via FAO report


    It appears none of the other 4 cases mentioned above are listed anywhere previously. I will add them to our Egypt H5N1 case list here.

    WHO clarification of the H5N1 situation in Egypt would be greatly appreciated!
