Now a 10 year old Girl dies of Bird-Flu in Indonesia.

The Riau province on the Indonesian island of Sumatra seems to be the new Bird-Flu-central in the virus inflicted Indonesia.

Last night (October 20, 2007) a 10 year old girl suspected of having bird flu died at the Arifin Achmad hospital in Riau province.

“She was admitted on Saturday but died less than 12 hours later, at around 11pm (0200 AEST),” said Azizman Daad, a doctor at the Arifin Achmad hospital in Riau province.

Dr. Daad said that samples from the 10-year-old’s body were to be sent to the capital Jakarta for testing to confirm the cause of death.

According to Dr Daad, it was not clear if the girl had such contact with birds.

Local tests indicated that she had bird flu.
