On his Avian Flu Diary blog, Mike Coston has posted Indonesian MOH Statement On New H5N1 Case. Excerpt:
While there were media reports late last week indicating a new fatal H5N1 case in Indonesia, today the MOH has published a detailed account.
The patient, a 33 year-old male, progressed from a `cold-like’ illness to pneumonia to ARDS (Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome) and then to death, over a two week period. During that time he was seen at two clinics (June 1st & 2nd) and admitted to a private hospital (June 4th) and then transferred to an FB (Flu Burung) Referral hospital on June 13th where he died on the 14th.
