Very Alarming News from the WSJ’s Avian Flu News Tracker:

The number of human bird-flu cases in Indonesia is likely far higher than reported because of poor surveillance outside the capital, the health minister said. There have been 11 confirmed cases of bird flu in Indonesia since July, seven of them fatal. All but two occurred in the greater Jakarta area. “Jakarta is better at detecting cases,” said Health Minister Siti Fadilah Supari when asked about the concentration in the capital. “I’m afraid that there are also many cases in other areas that are going undetected.”
