Bird flu death toll mounts
A nine-year-old boy has died from bird flu hours after he was admitted to a hospital in the Indonesian capital, becoming the nation’s 51st confirmed fatality.
The country also reported another suspected death, while four patients showing symptoms of the virus were being treated.
Indonesia has been criticised for not doing enough to stamp out the virus and it is viewed by many experts as the weak link in global efforts to ward off a possible pandemic.
