This is the official situation.

Egypt reported its sixth H1N1 death on Tuesday as well as 197 new cases, according to the Ministry of Health..

On the same day, 197 new cases of H1N1 were reported — the highest number reported in a single day since the virus first appeared in Egypt last June.

Egypt has reported a total of 2,078 H1N1 cases so far.

According to the Information and Decision Support Center, 1,918 have recovered while the rest are receiving treatment in hospitals.

Egypt is taking lots of precautions in an attempt to limit the flu arriving and spreading. The situation is certainly not as bad as in many other countries. No one can guarantee your safety anywhere but I think you should be able to travel here as safely as if you stayed at home :-) You'll have an amazing trip!

The death rate in Egypt because of Swine flu is very very negligible .. its less than 14 cases out of 3800 reported cases, thats 0.03%... So I think you should not worry about swine flu at all

I think you got a perfect answers from my colleagues

Enjoy your time

There are confirmed human cases of the H1N1 virus (Swine Flu) in Egypt, including several deaths. The World Health Organisation (WHO) Pandemic Threat Alert has been raised to Level 6.The Egyptian authorities no longer screen for the Swine Flu virus at their airports nor place in quarantine those who show flu-like symptoms. However, several British nationals have been taken to hospital after showing high temperatures and/or flu-like symptoms. If you have a high temperature and/or flu like symptoms, you should seek medical advice prior to travel to prevent hospitalization on arrival in Egypt.Medical facilities can be basic and vary throughout the country. Consular staff are unable to secure better hospital facilities or food and because of isolation requirements are unable to visit those affected. bt it s safe now & i ensure you that no swine flu in egypt right now & you can come anytime you want
