Indonesia: 44 dead of H5N1

Via Forbes.com: Indonesian Bird-Flu Toll Rises to 44.

Two Indonesian teenagers have died of bird flu, according to local test results that, if confirmed, would bring Indonesia's death toll to 44 and make it the world's hardest-hit country.

Normally reliable tests performed at a local laboratory showed that a boy and girl, both 16-years-old, died this week of the illness, health officials said Tuesday.

in perspective: Yesterday I was checking something on this site from last March, and found a post reporting Indonesia's death toll at 22.
