New H5N1 Case, and Death, in Indonesia

A 16-year-old Indonesian girl died of H5N1 on Tuesday, bringing Indonesia's death toll to 96 out of 118 cases.

The young girl died January 15 after a week and a half of treatment at a hospital in East Jakarta. Health officials say she contracted the deadly virus two weeks ago after eating half-boiled eggs from infected chickens in her home. Many of them had died from the virus days earlier. Two separate lab tests confirmed she died of H5N1.
