I thought I’d have a chance to pass commenting on your one lone article for the day, HOWEVER, it seems now the Indonesian Health Ministry has declared the test results for the 10-year-old girl as “negative for bird flu”.

Seems really suspicious circumstances that the Sumatran child can be admitted to a hospital for suffering classic bird flu symptoms, then die within 12 hours – and turn up negative. Especially after local tests initially confirmed she indeed had bird flu.

So, the cat-and-mouse reporting game continues.

And of course, the million dollar question which is never answered, is: what DID SHE DIE FROM ?

Did the Tamiflu subvert her test and cause it to be negative perhaps?

I would contend if Madame Supari has started (in fact) inoculating large numbers of human Indonesian residents with her experimental pre-pandemic H5N1 vaccine (as she stated she would), then we know Indonesia is plenty worried.

And then we will really know the true answer in this case.
