    Indonesian woman dies of suspected bird flu


    www.chinaview.cn 2007-11-03 22:00:24 Print

    JAKARTA, Nov. 3 (Xinhua) -- A 30-year-old Indonesian woman died of suspected bird flu on Saturday, the country's health ministry said here.

    The woman from Tanggerang town on the outskirts of Jakarta died on Saturday in a designated bird flu hospital of Persahabatan in east Jakarta, said Harris Subiantro, an official of the anti-bird flu center of the ministry.

    One of two laboratories' tests, which needed for confirmation, indicated that she was positive of avian influenza, said the official.

    "She was dead today. One of laboratory tests has showed positive," he told Xinhua.

    The woman had history of contact with some of hundreds chickens that suddenly died last month in her residence, he said.

    "She had contact with dead chickens belonging to her neighbors," said Subiantoro.

    If the woman's case is confirmed, it will put the death toll to90 out of 112 cases in the bird flu hardest-hit country, he said.

    Her child and niece who were suspected of having the disease, were not under suspicion, said the official.

    The woman began to have the germs of the disease on Oct. 23 and went to clinics five days later in the town, said the official. She was admitted to a hospital in Tanggerang town on Oct. 30 and was shifted to Persahabatan hospital in East Jakarta one day later, said Subiantoro.

    Millions of people could be dead should the highly pathogenic H5N1 viruses mutate into a certain level that could make it transmittable among humans.

    Huge territory, traditional way of rising chickens on back yard and lack of obedience to provincial administration in implementing the Jakarta decision to stop the virus spread are among the obstacles to fighting bird flu in the country.

          According to Encarta, Pinang is about 2-3 miles from Tangerang. Same distance to Bulak. Pinang does not seem to be along a well traveled road.

            Liputan6.com, Tangerang: Although being diagnosed positive terjangkit the bird flu virus, Sholeh that was the Tangerang resident, Banten, was still undergoing the activity as usual. He playing was proper for the healthy child. The child was three years old this could be treated in the hospital, but was returned by his parents that regarded his illness of only common fevers.

            In fact in the area of his residence, the Suka Asih Village, of Kecamatan Pasarkemis, Tangerang, some time set had one resident who was killed resulting from bird flu [read: Menkes Pesimistis Indonesia Bebas Flu Burung]. After the incident, the official of the local Health of the Service checked the example of villagers's blood. The official afterwards stated Sholeh positive was affected by the same illness. Sholeh could be then carried to the Hospital of Penyakit Infeksi Professor Doktor Sulianti Saroso, Sunter, Jakarta Utara.

            However, parents Sholeh forced Putra him to be returned because of being convinced the healthy child. Moreover, the good intention to the official of the Health of the Service was then refused by parents Sholeh, including the medicine that was given by them. As for till October 29 2007, the Kesehatan Service side recorded had 14 people died in the Banten Province resulting from bird flu.

            *****

            So, again, we're left wondering how many other mild (or even other) cases of H5N1 have been/are being missed.... ??

            Unusual mildness now in Sholeh's case -- and we saw unusual mildness in Egypt primarily amongst children earlier in the year. 'Sup with H5N1? What is it doing?
            Detection of mild H5N1 is largely dependent on testing. Most mild cases in Indonesia are found because there is a relationship to a confirmed cases. Without a relationship, there is no H5N1 testing.

                      H5N1 Cluster in Tangerang Indonesia

                      Recombinomics Commentary
                      November 3, 2007

                      A 30-year-old Indonesian woman died of suspected bird flu on Saturday, the country's health ministry said here.

                      The woman from Tanggerang town on the outskirts of Jakarta died on Saturday in a designated bird flu hospital of Persahabatan in east Jakarta, said Harris Subiantro, an official of the anti-bird flu center of the ministry.

                      One of two laboratories' tests, which needed for confirmation, indicated that she was positive of avian influenza, said the official.

                      "She was dead today. One of laboratory tests has showed positive," he told Xinhua.


                      The above comments describe the fourth laboratory confirmed H5N1 in Tangerang in the past few weeks. Three of the four have been confirmed twice and are official WHO cases. Two of the earlier cases were neighbors. One (5F) died October 22, while the neighbor (3M) has returned home. Confirmed mild cases of H5N1 are rare, and the vast majority are contacts of confirmed cases, because patients with mild symptoms are not generally tested. Testing is done at infectious disease hospitals, and most suspect H5N1 are admitted after failing to respond to treatment at primary care facilities.


                      The geographical cluster in Tangerang, which is adjacent to Jakarta is cause for concern. The most recent public human H5N1 was made public in early January. Therefore the genetic evolution of H5N1 from patients in Indonesia is unclear. Although most of the patients have some linkage to poultry, the concentration of cases in space and time indicates the H5N1 is being transferred to humans more efficiently.

                      The other hot spot for human H5N1 in Indonesia is on the island of Sumatra in Riau. In addition to confirmed cases in September and October, there was a suspect family cluster. Although initial media reports indicated the niece (10F) was positive, subsequent reports indicated confirmatory test were negative. However, the death of her aunt (17F) 11 days earlier, keeps suspicions high since both had bird flu symptoms.

                      The increase in geographic clusters in Indonesia remains a cause for concern.

                        Indonesian woman dies of suspected bird flu
                        -------------------------------------------
                        A 30 year old Indonesian woman died of suspected bird flu on Saturday [3
                        Nov 2007], the country's Health Ministry said here. The woman from
                        Tanggerang town on the outskirts of Jakarta died on Saturday in a
                        designated bird flu hospital of Persahabatan in east Jakarta, said Harris
                        Subiantro, an official of the anti-bird flu center of the Ministry. One of
                        2 laboratories' tests, which are needed for confirmation, indicated that
                        she was positive for avian influenza, said the official. "One of laboratory
                        tests has showed positive," he told Xinhua.

                        The woman had history of contact with some of hundreds chickens that
                        suddenly died last month [October 2007] in her residence, he said. "She had
                        contact with dead chickens belonging to her neighbors," said Subiantoro. If
                        the woman's case is confirmed, it will [raise] the death toll to 90 out of
                        112 cases in the bird flu hardest-hit country, he said. Her child and niece
                        who were suspected of having the disease, were not under suspicion, said
                        the official.

                        The woman began to [exhibit signs of avian influenza virus infection] on 23
                        Oct 2007 and went to clinics 5 days later in the town, said the official.
                        She was admitted to a hospital in Tanggerang town on 30 Oct 2007 and was
                        shifted to Persahabatan hospital in East Jakarta one day later, said
                        Subiantoro.

                        [The huge extent of the country], the traditional way of rising chickens in
                        back yards, and lack of obedience to provincial administration in
                        implementing the Jakarta decision to stop the virus spread are among the
                        obstacles to fighting bird flu in this country.

                          [There have been 2 human cases of H5N1 avian influenza confirmed in the
                          Tangerang district of Banten province in recent days: a 3 year old boy who
                          has since recovered, and a 5 year old girl who died. An earlier suspected
                          adult case in Tangerang has not been confirmed.

                          WHO confirmation of the current suspected case, a putative 90th fatality,
                          is awaited.

                          Tangerang is located in Banten province which can be found on the map of
                          Indonesia at <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:IndonesiaBanten.png>. The
                          HealthMap/ProMED-mail interactive map of the island of Java and the entire
                          Indonesian archipelago can be accessed at
                          <http://healthmap.org/promed?v=-2.6,120.9,5>. - Mod.CP]
                          The above commentary by CP is in error (on multiple facts). The earlier suspect case that was not confirmed was in Riau (not Tangerang). Media reports indicated the niece was confirmed, but later reports indicated that she was not. Her aunt also died with bird flu symptoms 11 days earlier, but was not tested.

                          The past THREE confirmed cases by WHO were all in Tangerang (12M, 5F, 3F).

                          When there are too many recent confirmed Tangerang H5N1 cases for CP to accurately count, there is cause for concern

                          12M (died Oct 13)
                          "The 12-year-old male from Tangerang District in Banten Province died on 13 October".

                          "A 5-year-old female from the Tangerang District, Banten Province developed symptoms on 14 October, was hospitalized on 20 October and died in an AI referral hospital on 22 October"

                          "A 3-year-old male from the Tangerang District, Banten Province developed symptoms on 14 October. The case has recovered."

Eti since Friday last week experienced the sign similar to bird flu and could take medicine to several doctors, but never recovered. Several days ago Eti had finally been reconciled to RS Persahabatan, but his life was not helped. Casualties's body was at once buried around his residence, last night, in accordance with the handling procedure of the bird flu patient. To the beginning of November this the Department of the Health recorded, in Indonesia had 112 positive cases of bird flu and 90 people including dying.
