The three-year-old girl, who was admitted to the regional hospital in Pekanbaru, on Sumatra island with bird flu symptoms, “has recovered from the potentially deadly illness after swift treatment” according to the doctors treating her.
“Lab results for the girl, Vivi, came up positive on Friday, but she’s now recovering quite well. She had no fever but we are keeping her for observation for another week,” the hospital’s bird flu team leader Azizman Daad told AFP.
Daad said the girl had been treated with Tamiflu as soon as she was admitted to hospital on Tuesday.
All or prayers are with the little girl for her to make a quick and fast recovery.
