Avian Influenza in Egypt and Indonesia

When bird flu became a hot topic in the news a couple years ago, most cases were coming out of Southeast Asia, specifically Thailand and Vietnam. According to the World Health Orgnization (WHO), in 2006, 64 percent of all cases and 70 percent of all deaths from avian flu were recorded in Indonesia and Turkey.

Already this year, a new case has been reported in Egypt, bringing the total to 19 cases since March 2006. New cases and deaths have also been reported in Indonesia this year.
