Egyptian girl dies of bird flu

7th February 2007

A 17-year-old Egyptian girl has died from bird flu after being initially diagnosed with human flu. She is thought to have been infected with avian influenza after coming into contact with infected birds.

The H5N1 virus has been detected in at least 19 of the country's 26 provinces. It was not yet known whether the latest victim had been infected with a mutated strain of the virus which has begun to show some resistance to the antiviral medication Tamiflu, health officials said.
