Four die of bird flu in Libya: Minister
PUBLISHED ON DEC 28, 2014 4:38 AM

BENGHAZI, Libya (AFP) - Four people have died of bird flu in Libya in recent days, the health minister of the country's internationally recognised government said on Saturday.

Rida al-Awkali said a fifth person suspected of having contracted the virus is currently in hospital in the far eastern city of Tobruk.

Three of the victims died in the capital Tripoli, while the fourth died in Tobruk, he added, without saying which strain of the disease they caught.

Tobruk is across the border from Egypt where at least eight people have died of bird flu this year, according to health authorities in Cairo.

Awkali said that he will visit Tobruk on Sunday and then travel on to Egypt to meet experts from the World Health Organisation (WHO), which closely monitors the various strains of avian influenza.

The H5N1 strain of bird flu has killed more than 400 people, mainly in South-east Asia, since first appearing in 2003.

Another strain, H7N9, has claimed more than 170 lives since emerging in 2013.

Libya's first case of bird flu was recorded at a Tobruk poultry farm in March, but no people were infected.

Again, officials did not reveal the strain of the virus.

Awkali said that the WHO would be sending a delegation to Libya within 48 hours.

Tripoli, 29 December 2014:

The National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has held emergency meeting after five deaths from patients presenting with what appeared to be the symptoms of H1N1 or “Swine Flu”. Over the last week, ten people, four in Tobruk and six in Tripoli, checked into hospitals with severe pneumonia and what appeared to be the symptoms of H1N1 or “Swine Flu” .

In Tripoli, three of the patients were pregnant women in their 20s and 30s, while the other three cases included a man in his 40s and two men in their 30s. Two of the women have died, while one remains on a ventilator in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). One of the men in his 30s has died, and the other two remain in the ICU.

Of the four registered cases in Tobruk, all were men, including two brothers, aged 28 and 40. Two of the men have died, while two are still under observation.

The NCDC has stressed that the situation is “under control” and that H1N1 is in no way an epidemic in Libya. It did, however, call on hospitals to prepare for the possibility of an outbreak of the disease.

[There are 2 important aspects worth mentioning in this report;
1. The 4th death occurred in a region bordering the neighboring Egypt, but no mention of the travel or contact history of the 1st 3 cases is available.
2. The laboratory confirmation of these cases as bird flu of H5N1 or any other subtype has not been mentioned.

With the myriad of avian influenza (new and reemerging) subtypes currently being reported, it could just be that we are looking harder than we used to, which appears to be more likely than all these new variants coming out, all at the same time. Also, the foci of these exotic subtypes have actually been reported outside Asia, which may be daunting, considering the potential for spread, but also shows that surveillance networks laid in place for both animal and human sectors are functioning efficiently. - Mod.UBA
