H5N1: Isolated human cases confound experts in Indonesia, China

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The evolution of a case of avian flu in Indonesia is confounding experts by the apparent delay in the onset of symptoms, the World Health Organization (WHO) reports. A 20-month-old patient from Kapuk, West Jakarta, developed symptoms around a week after the end of an outbreak of the disease in poultry in the area, and died a week later. H5N1 was confirmed. All preliminary tests of family members and close contacts have so far proved negative. The case brings the total in Indonesia to 30, with 23 deaths, according to the WHO's official count.
