The city of Minya, south of Cairo, Egypt is a place where home-based poultry breeding is significant. This week, MEA Risk’s Critical Incidents Tracker identified that a woman died as a result. She is the second victim in Minya, and the third in Egypt. Efforts are underway by the Egyptian authorities to contain the situation, but we caution travelers to avoid rural and poultry breeding areas for the time being.
