          The reference to dead children is probably to this case:

          Indonesia, West Java - 4-year-old boy died of bird flu H5N1 - December 14

          The fact that they do not know which H5N1 clade he died from indicates that the government does not have test probes. If this is the case then a negative test result obtained using a clade 2.1 test probe may still be positive for clade

            Once traced, he added, there was a duck breeders who originally bought the ducks from Bantul likely already infected AI. Thus resulting in the other ducks stricken AI.

            "Ducks are dead in the Ponjong, is owned by a community group made a special enclosure where ducks are close to each other," explains Tri.
