Indonesian boy is 9th avian flu patient

Xinhua reports that Ilham Junaidi, an 8-year-old boy, has been declared H5N1 positive. His 19-year-old sister Ina Sholati died of avian flu last week.

A spokesperson for the Sulianto Saroso Hospital asserted that the boy did not get the disease from his sister.

I am so far unable to confirm the CBC claim from this morning that a sixth Indonesian has died of avian flu.
