Indonesia: Another B2H case?

The Jakarta Post reports Indonesia treating new suspected human case of bird flu.

Indonesian doctors said Sunday they were treating a 29-year-old woman believed to be suffering from bird flu, which has so far killed at least 11 people across the country.

The patient, Sri Mukti, was admitted to Jakarta's Sulianto Saroso Hospital for Infectious Disease early Sunday after falling ill with pneumonia-like symptoms on Thursday, said hospital spokesman Ilham Patu.

Ilham told AFP that Mukti had been in contact with her neighbor's dead chickens in her east Jakarta home earlier this week.
