    The above article announces 6 new cases and 2 previously known cases.

    The new cases are:

    Male, 26, hospitalized, Sharqia,

    Female, 32, hospitalized, Menoufia,

    Dakhalia case, a 32 year old woman who died,

    Fayoum case, a 3 year old girl, is a previously suspected case. I will add to our list now,

    Giza case, a 5 year old girl,

    Beheira (Lake) case, a 10 month old child.



    Of the "cured" cases listed in th above article - 2 are previously known:

    34) Egypt - Male, 44, hospitalized, Sohag

    35) Egypt - Child, 2.5, Alexandria



    ------------------------------------------------

    The above analysis represents my best effort to quantify the H5N1 situation in Egypt. The total number of cases in the first 7 weeks of 2015 stands at 64, including 19 deaths. link

    For some unknown reason the Ministry of Health is only providing intermittent H5N1 status updates on its website. I believe my list to be a conservative count of cases and deaths. However, to be even more conservative, if the total known cases figure is reduced by 10%, there are still 58 cases counted for the first 7 weeks. This is a 50% increase in cases over the previous largest years on record (39 cases for 2009 and 2011. WHO link.

    A WHO clarification of this situation would be greatly appreciated!
