Media Reports Of New H5N1 Cases In Egypt

# 9470

 

The Egyptian Ministry of Health webpage hasn’t mentioned H5N1 in more than 2 weeks, but we continue to see news reports of new cases announced by the Health Ministry.  On Wednesday, we saw reports from the Egyptian Media: 18th H5N1 Case Of 2014, 14 of whom had been announced since the middle of November.


On Friday there were vague reports of a 3 year-old infected who would have made #19, but since we’d just seen a 3 year old reported, it wasn’t certain that this was a fresh case.  

 

Keeping track, based purely on syntax challenged machine translated news reports, is always an `iffy’ proposition. Fair enough to say that new cases continue to pop up. Today, multiple media sources are reporting the 20th confirmed case – that of a 42 year-old woman from Sohag, who apparently first fell ill on December 4th, was hospitalized on the 12th, and transferred to a new hospital today.
