State-run Egyptian reports that a four-year-old Egyptian boy has tested positive for the deadly H5N1 bird flu virus.
MENA news agency Saturday quoted a health ministry statement that identifies the boy as a resident of the Upper Egypt province of Qena.
The World Health Organization has not yet confirmed the case.
As of mid-June, the WHO had confirmed 36 human cases of H5N1 in Egypt. The nation's last confirmed infection involved a four-year-old girl, also from Qena.
Earlier Saturday, Indonesian health officials said a three-year-old Indonesian girl is being treated on Sumatra Island for bird flu.
Officials said the girl's condition has improved since she was admitted to a hospital in Pekanbaru.
People generally contract the deadly virus from sick or dead poultry, but scientists fear the virus could mutate into a form easily passed between humans.
Bird flu has hit Indonesia harder than any other nation. Eighty Indonesians have died from the disease.
Indonesia has agreed to work with a U.S. firm to develop a vaccine for the disease.
