Developments in Indonesia

Eight people suspected of being infected with H5N1 in Medan were all declared free of the virus. No new cases have been reported since the death last week of Linda Tismeri.

Tismeri, the 87th confirmed H5N1 death in Indonesia, traveled from her home in rural Riau to Jakarta to visit family after contracting the virus, raising concerns that she may have passed it on to others. The Indonesian government is following up her contacts to ensure there was no spread of the virus.

There is no evidence at this time of any spread.
