H5N1 Victim No.54 in Egypt

Yesterday the health ministry in Egypt announced the H5N1 54 infection case.

Child Mohamed Sobhi Gharib is the 54th H5N1 victim in Egypt, he is from the Suez Governorate , this is the first H5N1 case I believe in Suez Governorate. He has been in the hospital since the 2nd of February 2009.

He was given tamflu hoping insh Allah ,he would fight back , insh Allah, he will recover.

Already last week I followed the news and there are about 5 cases of H5N1 suspicion across the country from the Delta to Upper Egypt. The cases are in Monfia , Helwan and Qena governorates. No confirmation from the ministry has been issued yet regarding the results of medical tests , I think No news is good news after all

By the way the minister of Agriculture banned the import of birds from France
