    Re: WHO - Avian influenza - situation in Egypt - update 28

    The who report is in error where it indicates 27 deaths the official report from emoh has a total of 28 deaths shown as of 3rd of this month.

    The number is shown at the bottom of the chart below in the last column on the left side of the document.it should be read from right to left.

    heres the basic numbers shown

    ١ = one
    ٢ = two
    ٣ = three
    ٤ = four
    ٥ = five
    ٦ = six
    ٧ = seven
    ٨ = eight
    ٩ = nine
    ٠ = zero

    the current chart for 2/7 shows case numbers 95 and 96 still under going treatment.

    it also shows that case 97 as a new case listed for the first time publicly on 2/7. its the very first confirmed case for helwan Governorate from a total pool of suspects cases to date of only 37.the suspect case total for helwan has not changed in the last thirty days

    the same charts indicates that the last case added is 97 and is being treated in Cairo and is shown in governorate # 1 Cairo.

    it looks the positive case is being accounted for under the helwan governorate # 29 based on the persons permanent place of residence but is being accounted for as a suspect under the cairo governorate.

    hewan has had only 37 suspects total from 2006,no deaths reported and only one positive case ever recorded based on place of residence which is # 97

    seven new suspect cases were added on 2/7 bringing the total to date to 11,340 since 2006
