Second Indonesian avian flu death in a week confirmed

first_imgAug 9, 2006 (CIDRAP News) – The World Health Organization (WHO) confirmed today that a 17-year-old girl who died yesterday in Jakarta province had H5N1 avian influenza, marking the country’s second case this week.The WHO statement said the case was confirmed by Indonesia’s Ministry of Health. Indonesia’s case count now stands at 56 cases with 44 deaths—the most deaths in any country to date.An investigation into the source of the girl’s infection found that pet pigeons were kept inside her home and that several neighbors kept flocks of backyard poultry, the WHO reported. Animal health workers have collected samples from birds in the neighborhood for testing as part of an ongoing investigation.Human cases of H5N1 avian influenza from Indonesia are now being confirmed by WHO more quickly because the organization is accepting national notification of confirmed cases, WHO spokesperson Dick Thompson told the Associated Press today. Based on the WHO’s long experience with the Indonesian labs, he said further testing at an outside laboratory is no longer needed.See also:Aug 9 WHO situation updatehttp://www.who.int/csr/don/2006_08_09/en/index.htmllast_img read more

I think he said that in New Zealand but we don’t agree with that. We would like to sit down and give him a longer contract.”However, tellingly the Hammers chief confessed they may be forced into getting rid of the Manchester United youth product if Allardyce will not use him.“We do like him, we do see him as part of the long-term future of the club but we have to agree it with the manager because there’s no point signing a player he’s not going to play.”Another Hammers star whose future is in doubt is defender Winston Reid, who is understood to have rejected terms on a new contract.But Sullivan added: “I think we will get to a deal with Winston… So both balls are in the air with regards to Winston and Ravel but both are players we like very, very much.”last_img read more
