Two More Dead Of Bird Flu In Indonesia?
RSPI Sulianti Saroso currently treats 8 patients it was suspected terjangkit the virus of birds flu in two rooms, namely Cempaka isolation space and ICU.Another report said that one child died on Tuesday and one on Wednesday. But according to the Hong Kong sequencing reports, there is no genetic change in the virus that would have suddenly made it become more contagious. It may just be that people have been dying of this (mostly from exposure to infected birds) and now they are just testing and reporting it. We will know more within 10 days.
Six patients in Cempaka isolation space were Paradise (9), Rosnaningsih (3 years 7 months), the official of the Zoo of Ragunan USA (28), the trader asongan in the Zoo Ragunan GENERAL (39), DW (17), and JM (9). Two patients in ICU space were Gayatri pearls (7) and Windy Lisa (3).
Regardless, if it were your kids dying you would not be heaving a sigh of relief. Even if people are contracting the disease from birds, it's very serious.
