            The eastern Mediterranean area, along with many other areas of the world have been effected by the swine flu, but not only have they been battling illness and epidemic involving the swine flu, but the bird flu, or H5N1 has also effected this area and its regions. The regions which make up the Easter Mediterranean are Alexandria, Beheira, Dakahlia, Damietta, Gharbia, Kafr el-Sheikh, Monufiya, Qalyubia, Sharqia, 6th of October, Cairo,Asyut,  Beni Suef,  Giza, Luxor, Minya, Qena, Sohag, Port Said, Suez, and Asir Province. Confirmed cases of the bird flu have appeared in almost all of these regions, and a big problem for the eastern Mediterranean is that poultry is even testing positive for the H5N1 virus, and if this goes unseen can cause a fast out break of bird flu in citizens.
