Although I find no notice on the Ministry of Health website, multiple news sources are reporting the 17th H5N1 case of the year in Egypt – that of a 3 year old child in Sohag. This is the 13th H5N1 infection reported out of Egypt in less than a month.
Yesterday, in Egyptian Media: 16th H5N1 Case Of Year, we saw another toddler infected from Sohag Governorate, along with an outline of the Egyptian MOH’s response to this ongoing outbreak.
