font size    

The Egyptian Health Ministry said Tuesday that a new human bird flu case was confirmed in the northern Egyptian governorate of Daqahliya, the official MENA news agency reported.

The new victim is a four-year-old girl, Sarah el-Sayed Borhan, who was tested positive to the avian flu in Daqahliya, 90 km north to Cairo, Egyptian Health Ministry spokesman Abdel-Rahman Shaheen was quoted as saying.

Suffering from high temperature after contacting infected domestic poultry, Borhan was admitted to the Mansoura (governorate capital) Chest Hospital, Shaheen said, adding that the child will be later moved to another hospital for treatment.

The new case is the 23rd human bird flu case since the H5N1 virus was first detected in Egypt in dead poultry on Feb. 17, 2006 and then the virus spread to 20 of the country's 26 governorates.

The populous Arab country reported first human bird flu case on March 18 of 2006. Before the latest human bird flu case was reported, 13 people died and nine recovered from the bird flu in Egypt.
