After infecting many countries worldwide, Bird Flu has finally reached Egypt. Not less than 250 birds (mostly chickens) were diagnosed in one farm, and more are being diagnosed everyday.
People have stopped buying chicken, and consequently poultry merchants are doomed.
This isn’t the first time Bird Flu is found in Egypt. In 2004, H10N7 (a subtype of Bird Flu) is reported for the first time in humans. It caused illness in two infants in Egypt. One child’s father is a poultry merchant.
