A girl died of bird flu in Egypt on Monday, the second such death in two days and one that brought the avian flu toll to nine fatalities this year, the Egyptian Ministry of Health said. In a statement, the ministry did not name the teenager, but it said she was admitted to hospital on Dec. 20 and diagnosed as having the fatal H5N1 virus three days later. The 15-year-old girl died in Abassiya Hospital in Cairo, according to the statement carried by the semi-official Middle East News Agency. On Sunday, the Cairo bureau of the World Health Organization reported the death of Intisar Fareed, 30, of bird flu.
