    There is no Western governorate in Egypt.

    Is this the case of the 29 year old woman who reportedly died from H5N1 last week?

            No it appears to be another person based on the total of three different governorates being mentioned.The two below were reported as H1N1 one was questionable due to mechanical translation issues and possibly some political motives.

            Governorate number 17 'Beheira Governorate (Arabic: 'البحيرة)

            Governorate number 21 Dakahlia governorate (Arabic: الدقهلية‎)

                  We have 11 documented deaths for this year. Maybe the January death counts as a case for 2009 for the official Egyptian count?

                    I think that case does belong in 2010.

                      Case #91 is most likely NOT considered a fatality, although SAIDR reported this as a death in February: http://www.flutrackers.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=138846

                      The original WHO report for #91 is here. If there is a later death, WHO usually announces it in an update. Has anyone seen an update?

                        Note that two children suspected of bird flu infection are being tested (treated?) in a Mahalla hospital.

                          http://www.elpais.com/articulo/socie...lpepusoc_3/Tes

                          Spanish to English translation
                          Egypt recorded the tenth death from bird flu of the year
                          In 2010, there have already been 41 cases of the disease in five countries
                          E. DE B. - Madrid - 06/12/2010

                          The H5N1 virus has claimed its 21st victim this year, a 30 year old woman who lived north of Cairo. It is the tenth death attributed to influenza virus in 2010 in Egypt. Worldwide, van and 41 cases this year. Since the virus was detected in 2002, there were 509 cases with 303 deaths in 15 countries, mostly in Southeast Asia, according to World Health Organization.

                          Bird flu returns to Hong Kong
                          Bird flu is strong in five countries
                          The news on other sites
                          Websites in Spanish
                          In other languages
                          The H5N1 virus remains a low level of infection, but eradication is not achieved. Last year was overshadowed by H1N1, which this year is almost gone (the incidence of influenza is still very low in the Northern Hemisphere). But it seems that has settled in some foci (Egypt, Indonesia and Vietnam are the countries that have reported cases this year, 23, 8 and 7, respectively).

                          If the current trend continues, it is likely that 2010 will be below the 45 cases, while in 2009 they were 73. But the virus remains a threat to the economy of farmers, every time you get an outbreak in poultry is slaughtered the whole farm.

                          What seems clear after eight years of expansion is that H5N1 has not mutated (something he shares with H1N1, which breaks with many theories about these virus) and not a pathogen become more easily transmissible to humans and that despite what we know of antivirals and vaccines, mortality remains at around 50%

                              This is a suspect report. As noted above in several of the posts the woman was from Gharbia Governorate not from Beheira Governorate. The source for the FAO report is "media" but no link or citation is given. Without more information this is not a credible location report.
