Indonesia : 5 Possible Bird Flu Cases in S. Sulawesi

Via The Jakarta Globe :

" Five people from a remote village in Gowa district, South Sulawesi, were rushed to the Wahidin Sudirohusodo Hospital in Makassar late on Monday under suspicion that they had contracted the avian flu virus.

The hospital’s medical service director Khalid said on Tuesday that the five, who lived in the same village and included two babies less than 7 months old, had not tested positive for the H5N1 virus but said they had been showing symptoms similar to those infected.

“We have taken their blood and saliva samples to be tested in our laboratory,” the doctor said. The results should be available on Thursday."
