Indonesia reports new suspected human H5N1 cases

The Jakarta Post belatedly confirms a ninth human fatality from avian flu, but the real story is that new patients have been reported.

Meanwhile, Sulianti Saroso Hospital spokesman Ilham Patu said that five new suspected bird flu patients were admitted overnight on Monday and Tuesday from several areas of Jakarta.

"We now have a total of six patients being treated for suspected bird flu infections," Patu told AFP.

Some of the five admitted, he said, were in a worse condition than the sixth patient, a 23-year-old woman who has been in intensive care for the past few days.
