Health workers and doctors have taken the rare disease of toxoplasmosis from the Arabian Peninsula to Egypt in a country where the cost of treatment is far higher than elsewhere.
The woman was a patient at a Cairo health facility when she was infected with the disease and was sent to a hospital in the capital, where she died.
Doctors say she may have died from the infection, but the cause of death is not yet known.
Egyptian authorities have said the woman, known only as Rania, was a model who had no previous health problems.
She was the first person from the Middle East to have her disease diagnosed.
Her death was announced on Wednesday by the country’s health ministry.
The disease has a high mortality rate, and in some countries, the death rate is well above 100 percent.
Egypt has the world’s worst record on treating toxoplasma infections, with an average death rate of less than 50 percent.
Most of the cases are found in the Nile Delta region, which is home to the countrys largest population of people who live in camps and refugee camps.
Doctors in the Delta region say that while most of the patients in these camps have been infected with toxoplasmas, the virus can also infect people in camps without a camp.
It is one of the most contagious diseases in the world, and people living in the camps often share their water and food with other people who have not yet been infected.
The Ministry of Health in Egypt said that it has started treating the woman in Cairo’s public health center and is working with other hospitals to determine the exact cause of her death.
The ministry says that it is sending a team of doctors and experts to the hospital in Cairo and will continue to monitor the situation there.
