Typical of the coverage today is the report below from gate.ahram.org.
Note: the machine translation of the location of the second case in `Kuala Lampur’ seems to be an artifact of the Bing translator, Google’s translator yields `Megaga’, which I suspect actually refers to the town of Maghagha, in northern Minya Governorate.
