Many thanks to ironorehopper for tweeting the link to this report in El-Balad: Country: Veterinary experts: underestimated international reports of an outbreak of "bird flu" Egypt "disaster". The Google translation and then a comment:
Egypt has been in a very difficult position after the conviction of a report prepared by the World Health Organization and Food and Agriculture Organization "FAO" and the World Animal Health and "CDC" (American epidemics body) and the coefficient of the US Navy NAMRU, the Egyptian procedures in the face of bird flu confirmed shortcomings in dealing with the the disease, resulting in endemic.
Revealed high-level sources at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Cairo University for the Commission gave Egypt 6 months to adjust their positions until the disease by not turn into a pandemic threatening world pandemic is not before him do, especially with the Ministry of Health's inability to tackle the spread of the disease of poultry among humans, and the loss of the Veterinary Services to control the behavior of educators and their need for about 140 million pounds for the resumption of confrontation plans after a break in the wake of the revolution, January 25, 2011.
The sources should not underestimate the work of these international committees, which may cause its report after regularization deadline if you do not come in favor of Egypt, in the issuance of an international decision to ban travel to Egypt travelers and stone from Egypt quarantine areas at airports in the world until the examination and make sure they are free from bird flu, and the subsequent escalation procedures under the pretext of besieging the disease in Egypt.
