A 30-year-old Indonesian woman suspected of being infected with bird flu, died late Saturday in the Hasan Sadikin general hospital, in Bandung, on the island of West Java in Indonesia.
She would be the 86th Indonesian to have succumbed to the Bird-Flu virus, if the lab tests confirm that she had died as a result of the H5N1 virus.
The victim was showing symptoms of bird flu infection, such fever, coughing, breathing difficulties and low red blood count.
It is reported that she fell sick a few days after one of her pet birds died.
