Since the last WHO Influenza update on 4 December 2014, 18 new laboratory-confirmed human cases of avian influenza A(H5N1) virus infection, including four fatal cases, were reported to WHO from Egypt.

Two cases had onset of disease in November 2014, the others had onset of disease in December 2014. The cases were reported from eight different governorates of Egypt (see table 1). There was one cluster reported which included two confirmed cases in siblings from Giza governorate and one probable case in the siblings' mother who died from acute respiratory syndrome but was not tested for the avian influenza A(H5N1) virus. The investigation of this cluster is ongoing. All cases had exposure to sick or dead poultry. Identification of such sporadic human cases or small clusters are not unexpected as avian influenza A(H5N1) viruses are known to be circulating in poultry in the country.
