Susilo: Seven Indonesian flu deaths, not five

Via the Jakarta Post: Susilo puts bird flu death toll at 7.

President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said on Monday that seven people had died in the country from bird flu, announcing a higher death toll than the World Health Organization, which puts the number of confirmed fatalities at five.

"I have paid special attention to the greater Jakarta area. From what I have gathered there are 11 (positive) sufferers and out of those seven have died," Susilo told a news conference after a cabinet meeting to discuss the deadly virus.
