Flooding caused by high tides put coastal Muara Baru in Penjaringan subdistrict, North Jakarta, under water since early Saturday. "This is higher than the last ones (floods)," said Sartono, a resident, adding that the flood levels had reached one-meter.

Joko Tresno, an operator at Waduk Pluit dam, said that water levels had reached the two-meter mark and inundated the pumps as of 3 a.m. Normal water level is just under two meters. (Snip) Taskforce official Basuki said Saturday the office had provided nine inflatables boats to be used by the officials to rescue residents of the area.

"We have prepared shelters in Penjaringan subdistrict and district and at Interwood steel company, nearby," he said. He said the officials were also ready to distribute food, water and medicine to flood victims.

"This efforts have been coordinated with National Red Cross and neighboring subdistrict organization units," (Snip)

The Jakarta Flood Project had predicted peak tides causing flooding would begin on Saturday and peak on Sunday and Monday, warning the impact could be especially severe if the tidal flooding was combined with heavy rain.

Indonesia: Teaching Kids About H5N1 Bird Flu Virus
- "UNICEF has launched a new nationwide campaign in Indonesia to raise awareness among children about the dangers of bird flu.

Some 50,000 schools will take part in the programme over the next few months. Each school is to receive a kit complete with a variety of educational tools that were specially developed using characters from a popular local TV series. UNICEF worked with the creative team from the show to develop a short cartoon and public service advertisements that will also air on several stations.

"The cartoon is really good because you can easily understand why bird flu is so dangerous," said Ayu Novisia, a sixth grader at Kebonagung Elementary in East Java..."

...""Some 40 per cent of all victims are children. That's why it is so important that they learn how to protect themselves," said KOMNAS FBPI Chief Executive Bayu Krisnamurthi. "This bird flu virus will be with us for some time, so we must integrate life-saving bird flu information in schools to ensure that the next generation knows how to deal with this threat and future ones."

Kasus AI di Banten Melonjak  
Senin, 24/12/2007  

SERANG (SINDO) - Kasus avian influenza (AI) atau flu burung yang menyerang manusia di Provinsi Banten pada 2007 mengalami peningkatan.

Pada 2006, sebanyak 12 kasus positif flu burung dan 12 orang meninggal, sedangkan pada 2007, sebanyak 20 kasus positif flu burung dan 17 meninggal. Kepala Dinas Kesehatan Provinsi Banten Djadja Buddy Suhardja menyatakan, kasus flu burung yang diakibatkan virus H5N1 ini setiap tahunnya melonjak tajam dibanding pada 2005, yang hanya lima orang dinyatakan positif flu burung dan empat meninggal.

Kenaikan kasus flu burung bukan hanya terjadi di Banten, melainkan secara nasional terus meningkat. "Untuk itu, kami sebagai tim terpadu dalam penanggulangan kasus flu burung terus menyosialisasikan tindakan cepat kepada semua wilayah yang ada di kabupaten/kota. Sebab, semua wilayah hampir merata berpotensi menyebarkan virus H5NI,"paparnya.

Ketika disinggung, lima warga RT 07/02 Kampung Trumbu, Desa Trumbu,Kec Kasemen,Kota Serang, Banten, yang diduga terserang virus mematikan itu, menurut dia, empat orang dari lima pasien yang telah dirujuk ke Rumah Sakit Persahabatan, Jakarta Timur,dinyatakan negatif terinfeksi virus AI.

"Setelah dilakukan pemeriksaan intensif, empat orang dinyatakan negatif dan yang satu lagi kami belum tahu,"ungkapnya. Kepala Balai Pengembangan Peternakan dan Pelayanan Kesehatan Hewan Dinas Pertanian dan Peternakan Provinsi Banten Sanusi Achsan menyatakan, sampai saat ini pihaknya belum melakukan penanganan serius terhadap hewan yang diduga terjangkit virus flu burung.

"Ini yang menjadi kendala kami. Masyarakat sekitar belum ada kesadaran untuk penanganan flu burung karena ini menyangkut masalah kompensasi. Padahal sosialisasi penanganan dan pencegahan flu burung sering dilakukan,"ujarnya.

Dinas Pertanian dan Peternakan, dilanjutkan dia, juga akan menjalankan pemeriksaan tahap kedua terhadap lingkungan tempat tinggal kelima pasien yang diduga terjangkit flu burung.

Menurut Sanusi,meski dinyatakan negatif, pihaknya masih menunggu pemeriksaan awal untuk lebih memastikan status lima warga Trumbu yang diduga terinfeksi virus AI. "Kami siap memeriksa lingkungan dan hewan di sekitar rumah tinggal korban,"ucapnya. (teguh mahardika)

The rise in the case of bird flu not only happened in Banten, but nationally continued to increase.

So, we as the integrated team in the control of the case of bird flu continued menyosialisasikan the fast action to all the available territories in the regency/the city.

This that became our hindrance.

In fact the socialisation of the handling and the prevention of bird flu was often carried out, he said.
Officially Pertanian and Livestock Breeding, was continued by him, also will undertake the second stage inspection of the residence environment of the five patients who were expected terjangkit bird flu.

Hi AlohaOR, my records
match your count for 2007 in Banten - 11 positive.

I show only 4 for 2006, and 5 for 2005.  The chart I have has been agreed to the Indonesia Department of Health's cumulative chart they publish each time a case is positive.

Good questions you raised... I have no clue as to why this article references more.


[ Parent ]
3rd possibility
... is an error on the part of the Indonesian press (reporting 20 cumulative cases in Banten as 20 cases occurring in 2007 alone)

bird flu in a religious context?
 Jumat, 21 Desember 2007

The REPRESENTATIVE Regent Pelalawan, H Rustam Effendi SH, asked the community to cultivate the spirit berkurban, especially in menggesa the development of the regency bermotokan this Negeri Seiaya Sekat Fortune.

Moreover poembangunan the Pelalawan regency that developed fast as it is now, was results of the sacrifice of all the social stratum.

The spirit berkurban in the Idul Adha public holiday properly was spread in the other period.

Where the spirit berkurban this, was the interest mirror of a Muslim towards group's advantage, and it was demanded was buried on the chest of each believer.

The spirit berkurban also should be invested in the development of the Pelalawan Regency in the future, said Regent's Representative after the implementation of the Idul Adha Prayer 1428 Hijriah on Thursday (20/12), in the Raya Almuttaqin mosque, Pangkalan Kerinci.

According to him, ordered berkurban by cutting off the animal, and distributing him to them who had the right, really a Islam teaching that the draught with the meaning, that personal Muslim always fertilised moral to always do for the sake of group's advantage.

The spirit berkurban that made a Muslim have the spirit shared or gave.
At this time still many groups dhuafa and poor that had the right received, but was not yet comparable with the well-off community berkurban but did not carry out him, explained Wabup.

Menyembelih casualties's animal was the manifestation of piety and the feeling thank heavens to Allah SWT. Semangat berkurban sincerely and sincerely always must be seething in the chest of Moslems in order to develop the religion, the nation.

The more again specific meaning that Idul Adha described a surrender himself group to Allah with the willingness to give the sacrifice that was big for the sake of the obedience to Allah.

Because of that I asked Moslems to always increase the spirit berkurban to help interpersonal and constructive the Pelalawan regency.

Because this Pelalawan Regency establishment was the togetherness blessing and the sacrifice from all of us, he accused.

The other meaning, menyembelih the livestock animal after the Idul Adha Prayer, contained the meaning that in and implied.
Among them as the symbol of the nearness of the slave with Khaliknya and the sacrifice towards the interests lahiriyah.

Secara dzahir, casualties that disembelih not only social routine (the interest) that normally is carried out every year very much.

However that was the form of the omen of the slave's love to Rabbnya as that was demonstrated by the Prophet Ibrahim the USA and the Prophet Ismail the USA.

Berkurban also signalled the importance of faith and ketaqwaan in berkurban, also was the form of the opposition exam on the interests for a moment was worldly that was visible arousing in front of the eyes.

By carrying out casualties we hoped will kill the characteristics of brutality in the human body.

Moreover also brought closer a Muslim to Allah, he accused.
Wabup said, at this time various disasters were whipping the Indonesian nation including the Pelalawan regency like the plague of bird flu, the flood disaster et cetera.

Preferably this disaster could be taken by his wisdom especially in bringing closer himself to Allah.

Appropriately the Islam teaching did his legal casualties was obligatory for that was well-off.
So as for each kind of group that had kemam also was expected to be able to go along as well as in berkurban.
So if having the capacity preferably we went along as well as berkurban.
Or if indeed had the intention could save in the closest mosque, urainya. (in March)

Thanks for replying Dem
I also posted this on the false negative diary as well. I can find some information on Polio but not being a medical person myself, I really would like to hear what a medical person has to say.

You bring up a good point about "flattened" being a symptom in past posts too.

I am going to a Christmas Eve dinner at my daughter's new home and will not be on until later this evening. I appreciate your replying to me and I look forward to any input you have (along with any other medical people) that may respond to my question.

Thanks again and Merry Christmas to you and your family.

outside of polio
I can't think of any resp. disease that would give 5 people paralysis at the same time. So far in searching, i can find any one of a number of intances in individuals [a person might have had another illness like myesthenia gravis at the same time as an upper respiratory infection (URI)].

Assuming it really does mean paralysis and not 'flattened' or 'prostrate', here's an oddball thought:

Additional reactions observed with other influenza vaccine formulations: Allergic reaction, anaphylaxis, angioedema, asthma, encephalopathy, facial paralysis, hives, GBS, neuropathy, optic neuritis, vasculitis

If it were a single individual, I'd wonder about whether they were vaccinated and got Guillain-Barre (GBS). But many of the really unusual circumstance I'd have trouble applying to 5 people all at the same time. So, I'm stumped, I'm afraid. I'll keep checking.

Merry Christmas to all!

here's a polio cousin: enterovirus 71
Sporadic cases of acute paralysis occur with other enterovirus serotypes, the most important of which is enterovirus 71, the only non-polio serotype associated with outbreaks of paralytic disease [23,24]. Large outbreaks involving hundreds of cases, mostly in children less than six years old have been reported from eastern Europe and Russia [25,26], and more recently in Taiwan and Thailand [9,27-29]. Some of these children have presented with brainstem encephalitis, non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema, and a rapidly fatal course [30]. The muscle paralysis caused by the non-polio enteroviruses is characteristically less severe than poliovirus-associated paralysis, and is usually not permanent.

Not typically with symptoms of an upper respiratory infection, so I still can't find a match.

Thank you for looking into this n/t

The term flattest as translated from the Indonesian
text doesn't seem to match our expectations of the word.  Some time back, I translated some documents from the Indonesian department of health.  These documents further described the terminology being used in parenthetical statements as follows:

"The number of cases probable (the case suspek was accompanied by laboratory proof that headed to the influenza virus A/H5N1) was 7 people (3 people among them died).  The number of cases suspek (showed the sign of bird flu) that is 31 cases (11 people among them died).  Whereas the number of flattest cases (was not gotten by the sign but produced by one of the positive laboratory inspections) still continue to 1 person."


[ Parent ]
I never did know what was meant
which is why I brought it up.

[ Parent ]
All this time
I thought it meant the patient was in "critical condition". Thanks for clearing that up.

so do we translate 'flattest'
as 'asymptomatic'?

Terpapar vs serta lumpuh (flattest vs paralyzed)
And Development that DFS positive flattest the virus H5N1 the cause of bird flu.

http://tinyurl.com/27k4fd

Now the quote above was translated by TT:

However, Tini suggested, on Tuesday (25/12) approximately struck 02,00 WIB the patient died and afterwards in struck 07,00 WIB the hospital side received the news from Department of Health Research And Development that DFS positive flattest the virus H5N1 the cause of bird flu.

DFS positif terpapar virus H5N1 penyebab flu burung.

Malay translator terpapar = being displayed.

Kamus on line dictionary = terpapar  ter+papar  explained; stated; related

So I think flattest must be the way they say "test results show" or something similar. Does that make sense?

So I also think paralyzed and flattest are not the same.

http://www.poskota.co.id/news_...

The five of them it was reported experienced the increase in the temperature of the high body, breathless as well as paralysed after beforehand consumed a duck that disembelih because of being sick.

Translated by TT:

Penghuni ponpes dilarikan ke RSUD Serang pada Rabu (19/12) atas rujukan dokter puskesmas setempat. Kelimanya dilaporkan mengalami peningkatan suhu badan yang tinggi, sesak nafas serta lumpuh setelah sebelumnya mengkonsumsi seekor bebek yang disembelih karena sakit. Kabar lain menyebutkan, korban sebelumnya juga sempat memegang bangkai bebek

serta = along with; as well as; together with; including
lumpuh = lame; paralyzed; immobilized

So after all this I think that flattest and paralyzed are NOT the same. I also think paralyzed is not being used like we think of paralysis, this time.  Of course, this is not a news article this is just what I am finding with these translators we use and so some of this is JMO.

Hope this helps some.


[ Parent ]
BTW I used Kamus to translate these
serta = along with; as well as; together with; including
lumpuh = lame; paralyzed; immobilized  

[ Parent ]
that makes a lot of sense
flattest does not mean the same as paralyzed. The similarity is that each word might not mean what we (I, I should say) take it to mean in common usage English.

Michelle's example (and yours) suggests flattest refers to the test, and maybe not the patient. 'Paralyzed' when used as 'immobilized' might mean 'sick enough to just lie there', or might mean something else altogether (still unclear).

Thanks!

Another example of newshound translating skills. ;-)


[ Parent ]
I recall cases being so ill and weak they couldn't walk, and they had to be carried on stretcher
So considering a possible translation is "immobilized" perhaps that is the meaning rather than paralyzed.?

Always have a plan B.

[ Parent ]
I think flattest generally means
there is a known exposure to bird flu.

However, I think flattest as used in these Dept of Health tracking documents does mean 'asymptomatic' and tested positive in one test result.  

For some reason this 1 case was significant enough to them to count separately (instead of just calling the results negative.)  My understanding is that it takes two laboratory tests to consider a case 'confirmed'; therefore, I don't think this one 'flattest' case appears in the cumulative numbers we now use.

I did another search of the Word document with the Dept of Health reports I translated.  A later definition of 'flattest' is also given as follows:

"Along with this was presented by the data of the number of cases was based on the status was confirmed (confirmed), was suspected (probable), was expected (suspect), and flattest (expossed."

In the majority of articles translated today, I think flattest doesn't mean asymptomatic, but instead means exposed.  I searched our comments, and for example look at this one where 6 flattest patients were checked into the hospital. I think this old article is stating they are ill, and since they have been exposed, they are being considered as bird flu suspected cases. http://www.newfluwiki2.com/sho...


[ Parent ]
makes sense
exposed and positive but asymptomatic would be newsworthy, there are so few of those. if unconfirmed by subsequent testing, it might nver be counted and would go in the hmmm... column.

[ Parent ]
"flattest"
Has always meant "prostrate," i.e. it describes clinical symptoms, not a positive test or exposure.  

"Flattest" among the newshounds has generally been regarded as being the same as clinically presenting as "prostrate" here, or in other words, the clinical presentation of a serious flu patient who looks and feels like they were run over by a truck.  

It hasn't, to this point, referred to exposure or to testing, just to the obviousl clinical presentation of a very sick influenza patient.  


[ Parent ]
the phrase
Development that DFS positive flattest the virus H5N1 the cause of bird flu.

Translates as:  "It certainly looked from her appearance and symptoms that DFS had contracted the H5N1 bird flu virus."


[ Parent ]
and then Litbangkes
confirmed that yes, she was positive, confirming what they had suspected.

[ Parent ]
still not crstyal clear then?
Michelle's example seems different usage.

[ Parent ]
yeah, I agree
that is a different usage than we customarily see (and have seen in describing so many cases).  

It's all clear as crystal mud, as usual, from Indonesia.

The Indonesian Health Dept. could make it all easy and publish a chart of the victims' dates of onset, symptoms, treatment, test results, timeline, relationships, etc.  But they simply haven't made that effort at clarity.  


[ Parent ]
Traditional cure?
Is there a chance they may have tried a "traditional cure" of some sort which could have effected them in this way?  Just a thought.

[ Parent ]
At this point I think anything's possible Okieman
I was just curious about the illness being an ISPA and paralysis being a symptom in this situation. Thanks for the responses.

comment
I am now covering 7 sites, and none of them have had a bf story since the 18th, some the 12th. I'm starting to think that only a select few online Indo newspapers are privy to bf news. There are numerous Indo sites, and only certain sites are active for bf news. I'm not sure what we think is "news blackout" really is a blackout at all. My sites should have had at least one story on the suspect cluster. After all, the Linda case was on every site.

I just can't help but think something is strange about the way the bf news is being reported. Why do some sites carry the news, and the others don't, when they do carry it at times?

(sorry, but cottontop is just very frustrated about this)

Hi Cottontop
I have a theory about why some sites have news and others do not.

I like to have at least one link from each area. I believe geography is important when I search. So if all or most of your links are from the same areas you won't be able to search out all the news. Then of course, I think it helps to have at least one major national online paper that covers pretty much all of Indo or a TV station site.

Does that theory make sense? I am not sure what sites you have, but to me geography plays an important part as to how I find articles.

I have a collection of sites that I will be going through while I am off work. If you like I can get with you and you can look at some of them and maybe get some productive ones. Let me or History Lover know since I am going to be sending them to History Lover and get them co-ordinated through her.

Hope that helps.

BTW, I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year also.


[ Parent ]
I'm sorry cottontop.
We'll keep trying to get you some productive sites.  You deserve some.

[ Parent ]
Case in point...
One of my sites, Komnas FBPI, is Indonesia National Committe for Avian Influenza Control and Pandemic Influenza Prepardness. Now one would think that this site would be packed full of updated news, and articles on a regular basis. No so. I'm just wondering why this site, which is an important site for the Indonesian people, is not updated?

I'm not complaining, and sorry if it comes across as such. I just don't understand the silence on the majority of the Indo sites when bf news is rampant, and stories are breaking. Komnas FBPI should be a leading up to date Indo site, but sadly, it does not keep the people imformed of such a devestating disease.

So, I'll leave it at that.

That's a good question.
I ran across an article recently that seemed to imply that this committee had not been functioning for some time and had only recently been reactivated.  That could be the reason for the silence.  Or perhaps it is a committee with very little power and so they don't do very much.  I'm just guessing here.  We certainly have our share of those committees.

Banyuwangi poultry ban to Bali-may demonstrate
On Saturday, Des's 22 2007 had an embargo imposed Bali, the Breeder Threaten Demo

Banyuwangi-Peternak Banyuwangi became excited, in fact threatened to hold the large-scale demonstration action.
That was triggered by the ban sent the poultry to the Balinese Island.
This unilateral ban current was very damaging until the breeder was threatened with closing down.
Various efforts were carried out by the breeder to protest against the unilateral policy.
Yesterday the day after tomorrow, the Association of the Poultry Breeder Blambangan (PPUB) could visit the office of DPRD Banyuwangi.
They dismissed uneg-uneg him in hearing (the hearing, Red) that was attended by Section Head Peternakan (Disnak) Banyuwangi Budianto, Kepala of Hewan Teuku Hairudin Quarantine, and the B DPRD commission member.

PPU Banyuwangi Syaifudin Chairman admitted to seeing inconsistency in the banning of the sending of the poultry to Bali.
One of them the poultry from Banyuwangi no entry, but from Bali even might enter Banyuwangi.
The peculiarity continued with the detention of the poultry truck from Banyuwangi.
Strangely again, the truck was kept, but his contents was even distributed.
This proof that rumours of bird flu that was made the banning reason, that was unproven, he said kemarin

Syafiudin accused, the existence of the mafia in the smoothness of the sending of the poultry to Bali.
One of them, the sending of the poultry must through Balinese's original counterpart.
He also questioned the existence of instruction dualism (SK) Balinese Governor and East Java Governor related the sending traffic of the poultry.
Syaifudin threatened to hold the demonstration if the demand and the breeder's complaint were not responded to by the government.

Several days ago, the breeders also met in the Benculuk Village, Kecamatan Cluring.
According to Vice Chairman PPUB Sumantri Soedomo, they discussed the ban on the Balinese government towards the entry of the livestock from outside the island, including Banyuwangi.
This ban was made since 2005 and up to now still was put into effect, his regret.
DPD Golkar Party Banyuwangi Chairman said, his neighbour had sold the duck to Bali.
However, all the ducks that were carried the motor was seized and burnt.
We guaranteed the poultry from the breeder PPUB free bird flu, he stated.
The Disnak Budianto head admitted to sending the complaint letter to Gubenur East Java.
However up to now did not yet have the response.
He confirmed, there were two SK that arranged the sending traffic of the poultry from two neighbouring provinces.
Only, the entry of the Balinese poultry to the Banyuwangi territory it was suspected was caused by the emergence of the recommendation letter of Disnak East Java.
Strangely, SK Governor East Java concerning the ban entered and the issuing of the poultry from Bali up to now is not yet pulled out.
The B DPRD commission promised to carry out various efforts.
Among them, the physical approach and administration.
Promised legislative will write to the executive to follow up this case.
We would for the official submission letter institutionally, promised Ismoko, the B. commission member.

Health Dept. on Serang Six
http://www.depkes.go.id/index....

Suspek FB Serang, 4 Negatives, 2 Were Still Being Waiting For Results Of The Lab
24 Dec 2007

Six (6) the resident was from the Village of Terumbu Serang, Banten, treated in the Persahabatan Hospital because of being suspected of being infected by Bird Flu. Was based on results of the Penelitan Body inspection and the Development of the Health of the Department of the Health (Litbangkes), 4 including being stated was not infected by Bird Flu. For 2 other patients (NUJ, M, 12 and NAJ, M, 10) still was waiting for results of the specimen inspection by Litbangkes. Proven that to 6 cases not the case kluster Bird Flu. Results of the specimen inspection 2 suspek other will be obtained in the afternoon this (22/12/2007). [Is this saying that this cluster hasn't reached six cases, or it's not a cluster because there aren't six cases, or what?  And apparently the piece was written on the 22nd, even though it wasn't posted till the 24th.]

The sign of the fever to Muk (M, 25) began apparently on December 18 2007, and suspek other just showed the sign on December 19 2007. All the patients, except AiM (F, 30) was reconciled to the Serang hospital before finally was brought to RS Persahabatan, on December 21 2007. Apart from 4 patients that was mentioned above, the other patient was IKL (F, 20) and MBN (M, 15). Except AiM, all the patients lived in the same house. AiM personally lived in a house that was lived in 5 suspek other.

To six suspek this was brought to the hospital as preceptive efforts after having the report on the existence of the death of many chickens from the community of the Terumbu [Reef] village. Unfortunately, the official could not carry out the inspection of chickens that died. From the further inspection and was based on investigation surveilans was found by the existence of the positive poultry was infected H5N1.

Director Pengendalian of the Illness and Lingkungan Departemen Sanitation of the Health, Dr. Nyoman Kandun, MPH stated that the existence of the negative fever sufferer was infected H5N1 although in his environment was gotten the positive poultry was infected H5N1 was the indication of the awareness of the community as well as regional preparedness and the hospital. The fever sufferer was like lightning reconciled so that medical treatment efforts could be immediately carried out. Moreover, Litbangkes succeeded in carrying out the inspection in a short time.

The capacity to be able to be preceptive and readied-alert this must continue to be maintained and the community must continue to be on the alert against the death of the poultry around it. The community must immediately report the death of the poultry in his environment so as the poultry will immediately be able to be checked, and the community that suffered the fever immediately could be found. The operational procedure the standard will immediately be put into effect to prevent the spreading of Bird Flu.

In the highly unlikely event that anyone could possibly confuse my opinion with a news report, the following is my opinion.  This piece sounds somewhere between gleeful and smug that the Tami blanket worked.  I just wish they'd say, "we're really glad the Tami blanket worked" rather than "we ain't got no stinkin' bird flu."  I'm really glad the Tami blanket worked, too, but I wish we could believe what they say.

Before being moved to ICU, casualties could be treated in the maintenance ward of the class of two with the other patient.

This is not good. It could very well mean the medical staff, visitors and other patients were exposed for a significant amount of time. We need to keep an eye on this one.

China could produce the bird flu vaccine for humankind in the exact number, said Zhang Jiansan, Wakil General Manajer Sinovac Biotech, as being quoted by Xinhua, in Beijing, on Tuesday.
Around 400 people aged between 18 years and 60 years that were vaccinated between September and November 2007 did not show the sign of the side-effect, and vaccine medicine this showed the good performance.
The organisation of the Health of the World (WHO) responded on this announcement.
Around last year, China also announced the testing of the first phase of a similar vaccine for humankind.
This testing pushed China in making the progress but WHO was still needing information by being good for comment on.
We were still needing information further from the researchers China, said WHO.
Several countries and the company uptil now continued to develop the vaccination for recuperation H5N1, the cause virus of bird flu, that up to now causes more than 200 people to die in the world, especially in South-East Asia, since the end 2003.

JAKARTA, Dec. 25 (Xinhua) -- A 24-year-old Indonesian woman from West Jakarta has died from avian influenza, putting the total fatalities in the country to 94, the Indonesian Health Ministry said Tuesday. The woman died on Tuesday morning at Cengkareng Hospital in the capital and both of her laboratory tests showed that she was positively infected by H5N1 virus, said Nyoman Kandun, director of the ministry.

"She died on Tuesday after midnight, two of her laboratory tests indicate that she is positive of bird flu," Kandun told Xinhua.

He said that it is not clear whether the woman had historical contact with fowls as investigation is underway.
The woman first showed the symptoms of the disease on Dec. 14, and six days later, she was treated at the hospital, said Kandun. Contact with fowl is a common cause of the bird flu death in Indonesia.

Indonesia, the world's fourth most populous country and home to millions of backyard chickens, is considered a possible hot spot for spreading the disease, although the country has culled millions of chickens. Indonesia has been at the front row in fighting to combat the spreading of highly pathogenic H5N1 viruses, which have slowly and persistently spread on human.

This latest positive case is from Cengkareng, Jakarta.
She developed symptoms on 12/14.  http://encarta.msn.com/encnet/...

Notice how close Cengkareng is to Tangerang.  http://encarta.msn.com/encnet/...

A little too close for comfort, in my opinion.  The two prior positive cases were from Tangerang.  They died on 12/10 and 12/11, only a few days before the latest patient became ill.

Of course, there is no reported contact between these cases, and Jakarta is a very populated area.  Just a little too close for comfort.

Volunteers Wanted to Combat Bird Flu

Deputy Director Rumah Sakit Umum (RSU) Adam Malik Nur Rasyid Lubis stated that the bird flu in Indonesia has entered the third phase.  This means that this phase is critical enough, because it could develop into the spread of the bird flu virus from human to human or the antarmanusia spread.  Muhammadiyah North Sumatra, when opening the training of the Village Team Volunteers for the Control of PP MUHAMMADIYAH Deli Serdang Bird Flu in UPT Pelatihan and the Workshop Elsintan Pangkalan Masyur Street AH Nasution Medan.  He explained that phase three of  bird flu could develop into the fourth phase after the existence of the spread from human to human has been proven. Moreover this could be the beginning of a very dangerous pandemic phase.

So Nur Rasyid Lubis said that all the illnesses could be handled if volunteer training counselling were increased.  According to him, volunteers are really needed.  If signs of the existence of bird flu are found, it could be handled quickly.

He judged that many in the community do not take seriously that this could be handled by trained volunteers.  Now the Team of the Control of Muhammadiyah Bird Flu (TPFB) Amrizal, SSi was accompanied M. Basir Hasibuan SPd, who explained that the training of village volunteers was carried out by TPFB the MUHAMMADIYAH CENTRAL EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE who cooperated officially with the Deli Serdang Health and Livestock Breeding Service.  A total of  405 village volunteers and 22 subdistrict coordinators have been trained in Deli Serdang.  This training, he said was the final stage and hope for the Deli Serdang Regional Government through Regent Deli Serdang Drs Amri Tambunan who wanted built make full use of and paid attention to the village volunteers as the spear tip for the control of bird flu.  Taking part in giving the briefing was Ir Johan who represented the Peternakan Deli Serdang Service.  The agenda was carried out two days Saturday-Sunday, December 22-23.

The World Health Organization has already responded to this announcement.  Around last year, China also announced the testing of the first phase of a similar vaccine for humankind.  This testing pushed China in making good progress, but WHO still needed information in order to comment.  

"We still need further information from the Chinese researchers," said WHO.

Until now the country and the company has continued to develop an amount/quality of the vaccination for recuperation from H5N1, the cause of the bird flu virus, that up to now has caused the deaths of more than 200 people worldwide, especially in Southeast Asia, since the end of 2003.

on Wednesday, 26-12-2007 handsome basri
the Jaminan Pemeliharaan Program of the Health (PJPK) the poor community or more was known with the poor program of the community's health insurance (Askeskin) has three years had gone since being proclaimed by the government in 2005 then.

The program that was meant to give the free health service for the community was not more well-off this was regarded as the program that really took sides with the small people.

Through the Askeskin program, dozens of million the poor community could get the health service free of charge both in the community health centre and hospital-hospital that was indicated.

The hospital then began often was visited by the poor patient who held the Askeskin card and the Mampu Certificate (SKTM) that was spent by the district side or the subdistrict.

Since 2006, the queue of the Askeskin card of the holder's patient continued memanjang.
In the beginning stage, the government determined Askeskin help for 50 million poor peoples.

Afterwards the number improved to 60 million poor peoples in 2006 with the budget that was provided of Rp 3.6 trillion.

And in the first semester in 2007, the government determined the Rp budget 1.7 trillion for 76.4 million poor residents for this Askeskin program.

The government c/q the Ministry of the Health distributed the fund that was big enough for the implementation of the Askeskin program in Indonesia.

Where that was talked about as the government commitment in giving the service to the community.

PT Askes that uptil now carried out the program of the health of the maintenance guarantee with the program kepesertaan the Sosial Health Insurance for PNS, the pensioner (PNS, Republic of Indonesia State Police and the TNI), the Veteran, Perintis of Independence as well as his family's member and the voluntary Health Insurance program (commercial) that employed 2,204 employees and 1,825 limited manpower with 12 regional offices, 91 branch offices and 204 regency health insurances/the city, was entrusted to manage this Askeskin program fund.

However, the purposeful program very noble this afterwards experienced the problem.

The problem emerged when the hospital bill to PT Askes as the Askeskin fund manager very big.

Dana Rp 1.7 trillion that was provided by the government beforehand evidently was not enough.
As a result, many Askeskin claims that was requested the hospital side in almost all the territory in Indonesia was not paid.

PT Askes -pun felt kelimpungan and arrears in RS then happened.

This as being expressed in the meeting between the PT side the Regional Health Insurance of I North Sumatra - NAD and the rank of Daily editorial staff MedanBisnis in the Office MedanBisnis some time before, where in the meeting apart from strengthening bonds each other also discussed the problem of the development of the health insurance program that was handled by PT the Health Insurance was especially the Askeskin Program that indeed later became the current news discussed.

His article, in North Sumatra, could be able to be heard the assumption if RS Dr Pirngadi Medan as one of the reconciliation hospitals will stop now the service towards the Askeskin patient because of the arrears size that was not yet paid.

If that happened, definitely the poor community will really incur a loss because of experiencing the hindrance to get the health service free.

Now in North Sumatra, from 12,328,678 souls of the inhabitants, 47,58% or 5.5 million souls took part in the program of the guarantee of the health service.
And from this number, 4.7 million souls were participants Askeskin.

The number then still could be getting, because of PT Askes binding the work was the same as four regencies/the city in North Sumatra to catch the community that did not yet have the program of the health service.
To four regencies/the city was the Toba Samosir Regency, Pakpak Bharat, Serdang Bedagai, and Pemko Tanjungbalai.

Director Perencanaan and the Development PT Askes (the Share) the Centre, MGS Aritonang, was accompanied by General Manager PT Askes (the Share) Regional I North Sumatra and NAD Dr Taufik Hidayat MM, the Head of Sector Askes Komersial Muhammad Kastholani, Head of Sector SDM and the Public, Elly Sarumaha as well as was accompanied by Director Image Communication Aqua Dwipayana, when discussing with the side MedanBisnis stated, that the fund has for Askeskin been finished and even backward through to be forced menunggak payment of the hospital bill as far as billions rupiah.

The insignificance of the budget that was available for the Askeskin program that was incomparable with the number of the community's poor queues that needed the health service, it was worried about can hinder the activity of the health service for the poor community.

Because not impossible, with the number of Askeskin claims that was not yet paid by the side of PT Askes, the hospital side will stop now the service for the Askeskin program.

According to the calculation of the side of PT Askes, with the number 76.4 million poor communities that must be served through the Askeskin program, at least was needed the fund of Rp 4.5 trillion.

Whereas the fund that was provided by the government only of Rp 1.7 trillion.
Then from where must try to get the lack of the fund that was needed.

Because when the government immediately did not try to get the increase in the Askeskin fund, this condition will definitely make the side of PT Askes as the Askeskin program manager to was hemmed in but also will make was difficult the position of the hospital side as the provider of the health service for participants Askeskin.

The Health Minister indeed promised to try to get the addition of his fund.
The government has provided the Rp budget 2.8 trillion, where Rp his 1.7 trillion were used for payment of the poor community of the claim of the health service in the hospital through PT Askes, and Rp 1.08 trillion for payment of the community of the health service in the Community Health Centre through PT Pos Indonesia.

Moreover, also had Askeskin fund the year beforehand of Rp 126 billion that afterwards was added for payment of the health service in the hospital, so as the Askeskin fund for the hospital that was distributed by PT Askes to Rp 1.826 trillion.

In fact, the government could menggelontorkan the fund for this Askeskin program was again bigger when this program was made the program that really the priority.

Many budgets from the other program actual could disuitkan, like from the budget of the handling program of very big bird flu.
His article, many sides considered the handling program of bird flu more often have nuances political..

Afterwards, from the handling program of illegal drugs and the HIV/AIDS. Because for the two programs, in fact most funds gushed from outside through international agencies and NGO. Selain Itu, the good regional government the I level and the level Ii also could help this program by eliminating several budgets in APBD for the health program of the poor community.

griping about how the cost of avian flu eradication is taking money from the budget for general health care.

The insignificance of the Pemda
Commitment on Wednesday, 26-12-2007 zainul the servant/handsome basri
the Jaminan Pemeliharaan PROGRAM of the Health (PJPK) the poor community till at this time still was relying on the program from the government of the centre.

That then, apparently this program not the program that really the priority.
Because the budget that was provided for this program was still being very limited.

In fact, apart from the problem of education, the problem of the health of the community was very important to create human resources (human resources) that was strong and andal so that the Indonesian nation could more compete with other nations.

But possibly, the budget that was owned by the government of the centre indeed was still being very limited because of the number of other programs that also must be financed, including for the eradication program of bird flu that often seized attention of the government.
Although several circles considered this program of more of his political nuances.

However that also must be questioned was the role of the regional government, both the level of the province and the regency/the city.

Already how far the regional government paid attention to the health service of his community.
Because the regional government could also eliminate several budgets in APBD him to help made the program from the government of the centre especially in giving the cheap health service for the poor community in his area successful.

The rest of the article is similar to the one I posted above.

Left 2007, welcomed 2008, the Drought ended, the storm & the landslide ambushed the Gaplek City

A week still, in 2007 is left, changed with 2008.
For 2007, the disaster for the sake of the disaster struck the Gaplek City earth, from the flood, the landslide, nipples beliung or the death resulting from the illness attack and the drought.

In 2007, the bird flu attack and dengue fever including the prominent case.

Bird flu claimed the life of the resident Eromoko.

Whereas the case of dengue fever, was based on the data in ET AL Wonogiri to mid December, was recorded 10 from 424 sufferers died.

The illness that was caused by the mosquitoes sting aides agypti this last November, became the spectre.

That, was caused in the period one week was received by two casualties died resulting from the decline trombosit the sufferer DBD.

Yang made worried, two casualties lived in one RT in the Kaloran Environment, Kelurahan Giritirto, so as the local community anxious.

Kasubdin Pemberantasan of the Illness and Lingkungan Sanitation (P2MPL) ET AL Wonogiri, Dr H Widodo, stressed fogging did not resolve the problem.

That was main was the eradication of the mosquitoes nest (PSN) that was routine must be carried out every time one week very much.

Besides this, the drought was still becoming the customer for the Wonogiri community the southern part.
Usually, the drought struck the Paranggupito Subdistrict, Giriwoyo, Giritontro, Pracimantoro and Eromoko.

However this year, the drought also happened in Manyaran, Selogiri, Karangtengah, Ngadirojo or Purwantoro.
The area that was acknowledged as last this experienced the drought to the agricultural land.

The People's Representative Council member, Hajriyanto Y Thohari, could throw the proposed refining project of sea water to overcome the drought.

Whereas the storm always fell on the house in the spacious plain.

Another review of the year's disasters
Karanganyar the Edition: 12/26/2007, Hal.IX

The Kabupaten Karanganyar note for the length of 2007 (the I Part) the Pilkades Site and kucuran ADD was the point of departure for the development in the village
It was heterogenous that the incident took place during 2007 in Karanganyar.

For the resident Earth Intanpari, year round this will become the note to menggapai again better new hope next year.

Along with the Karanganyar note year round 2007.
His location that geographically was in the slope of the Lawu Mountain, made Karanganyar become one of the territories of the natural disaster customer.

The phenomenon of nature that happened almost every year, made some residents continue to feel worried.

Various disasters often happened, in fact to the dominant incident in Earth Intanpari.

Early 2007 this was preceeded with the peace action that was carried out by the resident Jatiyoso, Karanganyar, related the utilisation of the source of water of Ondo-ondo.

The resident who was bundled into the Alliance of the Jatiyoso Community (Amaja) cared about Sumber of Water of Ondo-ondo mempersalahankan this source current that the fact is precisely flowed to the Magetan Regency, East Java.

Year round this, the landslide and nipples beliung also became the disaster that often happened in this regency.
In February 2007, for example, several villages were in Mojogedang attacked nipples beliung that caused the loss as far as Rp 80 million more.

At least 27 house units in the Gebyok Village experienced the loss resulting from the incident.

Still in the month, at least three landslide incidents happened, in part in Karangbangun, Matesih, as well as the Karangpandan Village and Doplang in Karangpandan.

Complete him the implementation of the village head's election (Pilkades) throughout the regency also became the point of departure for the implementation of the development in the level of the village.

Mid February, at least 93 villages carried out Pilkades the second stage together and ran smoothly.

The development in the level of the village also was supported by budgeting from the Karanganyar Regional Government, where in the physical field received the portion quite often was compared non-physical.

The physical development increasingly advanced with the construction of economic means, the road and other means like tourism means.

In the middle of the relentlessness of the physical development that was carried out by the government and the community, the physical development evidently seldom was forgotten.

The physical activity that was connected with the protection of the community (Linmas), Posyandu and PKK, also ought to receive attention reasonably.

Moved on him the allocation of the village fund (ADD), that became one of the components in rural development it was hoped only was not finished to finance the physical activity, but also non-physical.

The secretary RW XXVI Gunungwijil, Kecamatan Jaten, of Hariyoseno, hoped the use of the ADD fund also included the physical activity.
So as in the future, the physical development activities received quite balanced attention.

Whereas in the sector of welfare of the community, the resident who introduced the help proposal of restoration of the house from the government during 2008, apparently will bite the finger.
His article, the help program of restoration of the house with a value of Rp 1 million per heads of households, who were proposed the Regional Government during 2008, apparently already keburu was refused by DPRD Karanganyar.
The head of the Pemberdayaan Office of the Community (KPM), Sri Desto Untung Raharjo, said from as many as 600 requests that entered, KPM proposed 500 head of household (heads of households) to receive this help in APBD 2008.
Because of being not agreed to, then during 2008 did not have help of restoration of the house with a value of Rp 1 million per heads of households from the Regional Government.
During 2007, the amount reached 2,200 of KK. Sebanyak 2,000 heads of households were realised through APBD 2007 pure, whereas that 200 heads of households to APBD 2007 changes.

JAKARTA (Reuters) - An Indonesian woman who bought a live chicken from a market died from bird flu on Christmas Day, the Health Ministry bird flu centre said on Wednesday, taking the total number of deaths from the disease in Indonesia to 94.

The 24-year-old woman from Jakarta who died on Tuesday morning had tested positive for bird flu after being treated for several days in a hospital, said an official at the centre.

"The woman bought a live chicken in the market and slaughtered the chicken there before taking it home. But we're still investigating the cause," the official said.

Indonesia has had the world's highest number of human deaths from bird flu.

Contact with sick fowl is the most common way of contracting bird flu, endemic in bird populations in much of Indonesia.

Experts fear the virus could mutate into a form easily passed from person to person, killing millions of people worldwide.

More on Diane and her mother speaks
Translated with Malay translator and Kamus I couldn't get TT to work at all. I didn't do this article just either. I think Diane's mother is saying she was misdiagnosed with Typhus (that is also mentioned in a previous post) and that Diane may have had a heart condition.
I will try and retranslate this one if and when I can get TT to work. Mojo, if you are out there you can try TT if you like.
Thanks

Bayu Krisnamurthi: The man in charge...
of coordinating bird flu response

Emmy Fitri, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

... "The first book I read after being appointed to chair the National Committee on Avian Influenza and Pandemic Preparedness was The Great Influenza. The book sheds light on what we're dealing with and has helped me understand the battle we're facing," Bayu said.

[snip]

Although hardest hit, Indonesia has yet to make any significant contribution to the world's scientific quest. To make things worse, in February this year, Health Minister Siti Fadila Supari decided to cease sharing specimens of the live virus -- virus specimens obtained from confirmed human cases -- as a protest to perceived unfair treatment from the World Health Organization.

Experts expressed dismay at the ministry's prolonged standoff with the WHO, with Siti demanding a revision to the 50-year-old Global Influenza Surveillance system.

Bayu declined to comment on the matter.

Avian flu death prompts investigation
A woman's death from bird flu a little past midnight Tuesday has prompted a team of health officials to secure her home and surrounding residential area in Kalideres, West Jakarta.

The 24-year-old woman, identified by her initials, DF, died in Cengkareng Hospital, West Jakarta, two weeks after doctors positively diagnosed her with bird flu. Her death has taken the city's bird flu toll to 24 deaths since the first was recorded July 20, 2005.
(Snip)
The ministry said it was still trying to determine the exact source of DF's death. Early reports said she may have caught the disease after buying chicken at a nearby market.

The West Jakarta Public Health Sub-agency, in cooperation with the Health Ministry, also sent a team to investigate the source of the disease and to monitor any signs of infection in neighboring residents.

"We have tested 50 people who had been near the victim and thankfully they have all tested negative," sub-agency head Dr. Ariani Murti said. "We have not seen any signs or symptoms from the people in her immediate area."

Ariani said Kalideres is prone to bird flu because it was "very dirty" and some residents still kept chickens around their houses despite the prohibition by the city administration. Earlier this year, a boy from the same area also died after becoming infected with bird flu.

He was one of six people living in the neighborhood who contracted bird flu. Ariani said health services would continue to monitor Kalideres for the rest of the week.
She said her office needed much support from the public and residents to help prevent further infections.

"The people of Kalideres need to, please, stop keeping poultry in their homes, otherwise these cases will keep on occurring," she said.

The second most recent death from bird flu was a businessman identified by initials MS. On Dec. 2, MS had a fever, acute coughing and respiratory problems. Two weeks later he died in RS Persahabatan Jakarta, East Jakarta. http://www.thejakartapost.com/...

I don't think our records match this comment...
He was one of six people living in the neighborhood who contracted bird flu.

If the article is speaking of Randi (14) from Kalideres, Jakarta West who died on 1/10/07, then we don't have 5 other positives from the same neighborhood.  We have 5 family members who were hospitalized but tested negative, and we have 7 other relatives/neighbors who tested negative.

However, there is a chance we match the comment if the grammar is rearranged to mean "He was one of a family of six people living in the neighborhood who contracted bird flu."

Medical treatment lands regent in hot water
Local Tangerang resident, Rasidin, has reported the city's regent Ismet Iskandar to the Jakarta Police, with claims his brother died after receiving free medical treatment promoted in the district by Ismet's office.

The free medical treatment was available from the end of November for some 20 days and covered several subdistricts in Tangerang.

Rasidin, a resident of Mauk subdistrict, said his brother Hamdan was sent to hospital after consuming medicine provided at the beginning of December. On Dec. 14, Hamdan 46, passed away. He is survived by his wife and two children.

"He only had the flu at that time, but after consuming the medicine, he went into a coma three hours later, and died in hospital eight days later," Rasdin's lawyer Ahmad Bay Yefni Lubis said.
(Snip)
Ismet said the free medical treatment was regularly on offer in his area, however, all treatment provided was registered under his name. (Snip) Head of Tangerang's health agency Hanny Hariyanot said he was sure the death was not related to the free medicine provided. He said the clinic had provided Hamdan with pain killers and vitamin pills. "The painkillers, Antalgin, rarely cause allergic reaction," Hanny said.

"On the other hand, if the medicines were faulty, why is Hamdan the only person who had a reaction? "There were 300 to 400 patients that received treatment.

"Hamdan had long suffered from meningitis, and he died because of that," he told reporters. (Snip) They say the underprivileged are often neglected by hospitals and some are sent home because they cannot afford to pay.

Critics have also said free medical treatment is often used as a token gesture by the government; poor patients are given vitamins instead of "real" medicine for their illnesses. http://www.thejakartapost.com/...

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away. --Unknown

     


My comment
Meningitis is not a chronic illness. It is an acute illness which comes on rapidly and has a shot life span, usually either because of successful treatment or death of the patient

"Hamdan had long suffered from meningitis, and he died because of that,"

On 12/10, NY Mutiah, a 28 years old Tangerang resident, positive for bird flu became death #92. On 12/13, Mustang Al Kasiman, a 47 years old Tangerang resident, positive for bird flu died. Both patients were in Persahabatan Jakarta Timur Hospital at the time of their death.

I hope this incident is fully investigated and more details come out.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away. --Unknown

true
Survivors could have longstanding medical (neuro) complications rather than longterm infection, but as you point out, infectious meningitis is usually not a chronic illness.

The length of time from 'beginning of Dec' to 12/14 is consistent with meningitis, but the term 'long' is confusing.

Also, meningitis can be caused by atypical or non-infectious causes.

Worrisome is this:

poor patients are given vitamins instead of "real" medicine for their illnesses.

Bird Flu Vaccine in the Form of a Powder
http://www.seputar-indonesia.c...
Thursday, December 27, 2007, Hat-Tip Influentia2
Researchers in Belanda have already established a vaccine for the bird flu virus in the form of a powder.   This powder vaccine obviously is able to resist the bird flu problem and can be obtained through distribution and although kept in storage, it is within a temperature space.  Previously the liquid form of the vaccine still needed a cold temperature room so that it was difficult to be distributed to the poor or developing countries.  The researcher and initiator of this idea, Jean Pierre Amorij, from the Groningen University, stated that the bird flu vaccine in the form of this powder meant that efforts to prevent the deaths from a serious plague would be possible.
