      fever and throat pain
      yeah. This is going to get very interesting indeed. I hope it's H1N1, and not H5N1.

        I don't think these stories are discussing H5N1 (only H1N1 is suspected).

          Does anyone here speak Arabic? This isn't the first time I've seen such a curious translation like this:

          on suspicion of avian influenza virus infected pigs
          I don't see anything else referring to pigs, so I can't decide if they are actually talking about pigs with bird flu or if this is some bizarre way of saying someone has swine flu.

              They are discussing H1N1. I wasn't too clear. What I was trying to say was....it's going to be interesting because the symptoms for both H1N1 and H5N1 are the same. And they've got suspected cases of H5N1 in Egypt also.

                its the pig flu they are speaking of that was cause by a bird. somethings translate badly.

                yes it will be most likely get crazy here. the hospital staffs will go crazy trying to sort out the regular yearly flu, food poisoning,bird and or swine flu from other issues which have many of the same symptoms.

                even transporting people to a facility with the correct equipment for life support will become a real challenge as many of the emergency vehicles are just vehicles stripped of most of the normal equipment.

                not to mention when the wind blows over the dry land, it picks up lots of fecal matter from animals and other livestock. the dust gets in everything here it cant be stopped.

                our daily avg. temps range from about a low of 70f to 100f with humidity from 30% up to 80% during the night. I would think that type of environment would be very hard on a normal virus.

                  Information about the Inspection Procedures for Arriving Passengers At Cairo International Airport for H1N1 Virus

                  The Egyptian Ministry of Health is currently screening all passengers arriving at Cairo International Airport as a precaution due to the H1N1 virus.

                  All passengers arriving at the airport are required to present a complete health card (distributed on the plane for passengers to fill out) which includes personal data and place of residency in Egypt. Passports are examined. Some passengers are screened via infrared cameras. Others are tested with thermometers.

                  If a passenger is not running a fever, he or she is allowed entry and the data is sent to the General Health Directorate and the Egyptian Ministry of Health.

                  If a passenger has a fever over 38 centigrade, he or she is examined by a quarantine doctor and a mandatory flu test is conducted. If flu symptoms (high fever, headache, and running nose) are evident, the passenger is isolated and transferred to a hospital in Abbassia for observation for at least 48 hours. If test results are negative, the passenger is allowed to leave the hospital. If the test results are positive, the passenger will be quarantined until the Ministry of Health determines the passenger no longer poses a health risk.
