New human infections likely in Indonesia

Indonesia's health minister said on Thursday that three children are showing symptoms of bird flu, Elshinta news radio reported. 

It said the three, all under 5 years of age, were being treated at a hospital in Jakarta and quoted minister Siti Fadillah Supari as saying they showed such symptoms as high fever, shortness of breath and signs of viral infection.

Asked by a reporter whether test results had been received, Supari said: "Not yet, maybe in two or three days hopefully, because this is a holiday, but looking at the symptoms ... there's a large possibility that it is bird flu."
