CAIRO, Feb 25 (Reuters) - A 4-year-old Egyptian girl tested positive for bird flu on Monday, the 44th confirmed human case in the Arab world’s most populous country, state news agency MENA said.

Ministry of Health spokesman Abdel Rahman Shaheen said the girl had been treated with the antiviral drug tamiflu and had been transferred from Minya province to a hospital in Cairo, the agency said.

The girl is suffering from a high fever and is having trouble breathing because she has inflammation of one of her lungs.
