Egypt Reports Second Suspected Human Bird Flu Case

Egypt’s health ministry says it has discovered a second suspected human case of bird flu.

The health ministry said Sunday a young man has been hospitalized since Thursday after suffering symptoms of the disease. It said he kept a chicken farm and that a number of them had died last Monday.

The report followed the death Friday of a woman believed to have contracted the H5N1 strain of the virus.
