Suspsected human H5N1 cases in Turkey & Indonesia

There are two spots we're watching for potential human cases of H5N1, including hospitalized patients in Turkey and Indonesia

From Avian Influenza Daily Digest

"Turkey: 5 Hospitalized due to Suspected AI in Ortaklar Village
12/1/08 ARGUS--A regional source reports that 5 people in Ortaklar Village, Vezirkopru District who were visiting each other were hospitalized at Vezirkopru Government Hospital due to suspected avian influenza (AI) after consuming an unspecified number of sick chickens and complaining of fever and nausea. According to the source, laboratory tests are underway. Reportedly, 1 child and 1 adult remain hospitalized. 3 were discharged."

The second location is in Rejoso Village, Ampel, Boyolali Indonesia where a family is being tested and observed. However, there is very little information at this time
