 Egypt finds 12th human bird flu case 1 hour, 13 minutes ago

CAIRO (Reuters) - Egypt has found its 12th case of human bird flu, Health and Population Minister Hatem el-Gabali said in comments published late on Monday.

The latest case was an 18-year-old woman from a province north of Cairo who caught the virus after handling infected birds, the state MENA news agency quoted Gabali and ministry officials saying.

The ministry said the woman was in a stable condition and members of her family were being tested for infection.

"She is being given Tamiflu, the necessary treatment for battling bird flu," a ministry official said, referring to the anti-viral medication thought to be the best method of fighting bird flu in humans.

The deadly H5N1 strain has so far killed three people in Egypt, according to the government. A further five have made full recoveries and four remain in hospital.

The     World Health Organization (WHO), which carries out additional tests after initial government testing, has confirmed four of Egypt's total cases including two of the deaths.

The disease, which has killed at least 109 people worldwide, has spread rapidly since 2003 from Asia to Europe, the Middle East and Africa. While mainly affecting animals, scientists fear the disease could mutate into a form that can pass between humans, sparking a pandemic.

    Bird flu was detected in birds in Egypt in February and the first human infection was reported in mid-March. The WHO has said it is concerned about the disease's human toll in a relatively short period of time.

Women, who make up all three of Egypt's fatalities, are often responsible for slaughtering and cooking domestic poultry, and the government has called for more awareness about bird flu among women to protect themselves and their families.

Avian influenza – situation in Egypt - update 4

13 April 2006

The Ministry of Health in Egypt has informed WHO of the country’s 12th case of human infection with the H5N1 avian influenza virus. The patient is an 18-year-old girl from the northern governorate of Minufiyah. She developed symptoms on 5 April and was hospitalized on 11 April. She remains hospitalized in stable condition. As with all other cases in Egypt, her infection has been linked to direct contact with diseased birds.

Samples from the patient tested positive for H5N1 infection in the country's Central Public Health Laboratory and the Cairo-based US Naval Medical Research Unit 3 (NAMRU-3).

Of the 12 cases in Egypt, three have died and four remain hospitalized. Five patients have fully recovered and been discharged from hospital.
