WHO: Egypt Reports New Bird Flu Case

A big hat tip to Mike Coston at Avian Flu Diary for this report, please go to this site for all the links :

" Traditionally, reports of H5N1 infections generally decline during the summer months, pick up over the fall and winter, and peak in the Spring. This year has been running true-to-form, with only a handful of human cases reported over the past couple of months.

Egypt, which has seen the highest number of cases this year, today reported their 32nd case of 2011 to the World Health Organization.

In this case, the patient was a 6 year-old girl from Behira governorate who fell ill on July 12th, but recovered and was discharged from the hospital on the 30th."
