Indonesia : Deceased Indonesian Had Swine Flu, Not Bird Flu

Via The Jakarta Globe :

" The Ministry of Health confirmed on Friday that a man who was initially thought to have died as a result of contracting bird flu was instead killed by complications caused by the H1N1 virus, formerly known as swine flu.

Rohmad, 18, from Tangerang, died on Wednesday after five days in the isolation ward at Tangerang General Hospital. He had been admitted last week complaining of high fever, shortness of breath and a sore throat.

“The cause of death of the Tangerang resident was because of the H1N1 virus, not H5N1 [bird flu],” Ministry of Health official Trihono said."
