    All of the above cases appear to be new and not previously known or listed anywhere.

    The only exception might be the reported girl, 3.5 years old from Assiut. There is a case of a 2.5 year old hospitalized from Assiut:

    58) Egypt - Child, 2.5 hospitalized, Assiut

    Sometimes the ages are a bit off from report to report.

    I will add all 5 cases to our list here.

    A clarification from WHO would be greatly appreciated!
