http://kesehatan.kompas.com/re...
Yogyakarta:   The condition for a bird flu suspect patient with the initials AMM (29) who was treated in the Pusat Public Hospital (RSUP) Dr Sardjito Yogyakarta is critical because she is experiencing breath failure.  

"We continue to monitor the development of the patient who currently uses the ventilator as a respiratory aid," said the Division Head of Humas RSUP Dr Sardjito Yogyakarta, Trisno Heru Nugroho, in Yogyakarta on Monday.  

According to him, the female patient was reconciled to RSUP Dr Sardjito on August 6 2009 from RS PKU Muhammadiyah Bantul in a condition that was not good.  At this time, he said, the patient who was in a coma was placed in the special ward that handles the swine flu and bird flu sufferers.

"We received information that before she was treated in RS PKU Muhammadiyah Bantul, AMM had contact with the poultry during a party in the Gunungkidul Regency," he said. "Apart from AMM," he said, "RSUP Dr Sardjito Yogyakarta also treated a bird flu suspect patient with the initials RR (12) and two swine flu suspect patients.  The condition for RR was far better compared to AMM," he said.

Heru regretted he did not have a single family that guarded AMM while she was undergoing the intensive treatment in RSUP Dr Sardjito Yogyakarta.

"After being reconciled here (RSUP Dr Sardjito), the person who brought AMM only gave a visiting card and a mobile phone number.  We tried repeatedly to contact this telephone number, but it was in fact inactive," he said.

Government Neglect of People

August 8, 2009, hat-tip Tracker MLBIT

http://www.banjarmasinpost.co....

The spread of the virus H1N1, the cause of swine flu, finally has arrived in Indonesia. Moreover now it is already in Banjarmasin. The sincerity of the government in warding off the entry of this virus must be questioned.

We have learned enough about virus H5N1 that beforehand affected livestock breeding in Indonesia. The incident happened repeatedly. Bird flu, the bomb, elevated hunger, poverty, no medicine, deaths because of slow help, school dropouts, criminals, more viruses, and various disasters that were a result of the ruler's negligence while being in charge of his people.

In a flash, this is the picture of a rich country managed with the capitalist system. All was aimed for the profit. The government that should have been the people's attendant, instead were swayed precisely by the foreign investor's attendant/capital and placed them in the seat of honour. To handle all the problems, we must have a serious government in charge of the people. All will be difficult or even impossible to implement when this country is still being managed with the capitalist system that only will have the active participation of those who receive the profit.

Editors

BANDUNG, (PR) .-

Government and the community in West Java called to be careful and alert for the possibility of the spread of the peak flu virus H1N1, which is estimated will occur in October-November to come. Climate that allows the occurrence of flu has demanded vigilance over the possibility of the first peak of the pandemic virus H1N1 in West Java.

Monitoring and surveillance coordinator Komnas FBPI Heru Setijanto say, until now, all cases of H1N1 infection in Indonesia - including the West Java - have not reached the peak. The reason, season is still going to happen to two months. Suspected, and the risk of outbreaks of bird flu is still high.

"Many agencies and institutions of the provincial government, district, and cities in West Java, is expected to soon make a concerted action to anticipate the spread of a more broadly. We assess, so far, commissions in various districts and cities in West Java, is still not ready. Thus, necessary coordination and integrated all the togetherness, "he said.

He also appealed to various schools in the West Java, especially in the areas of the flu occur more mass attacks, such as Bandung, to dismiss the school. This as an effort to prevent spread of flu virus - which can be - H1N1.

He said, preparedness is higher now do countries in Europe to anticipate the H1N1 pandemic in the winter, which is estimated will appear in October-November. Countries that receive a supply of masks as much as possible.

Meanwhile, he said, masks in stock would not suffice, especially if it occurs later H1N1 flu pandemic. Moreover, the product mask that is mostly only used once so is less reliable in the long term.

Hope preparedness is also due with Jabar Banten, DKI, and East Java, as centers of production and consumer largest poultry. This is considered vulnerable to widespread outbreaks of H1N1 occurred (flu Mexico / swine flu) which mixed with the feared virus H5N1 (bird flu).

"There are two possibilities. If the H1N1 virus (which does not shut off) with the mixed nature of H5N1 (the slow spread), the good news. But what if the mix of H1N1 that is spreading quickly, met with the nature of the H5N1 death, this is very serious, "he said.

According to him, the effort of prevention of a mixing between influenza A H5N1 virus (bird flu) and influenza A H1N1 strain of Mexico should be good. For, is not known when that will happen tempering, while the potential to be very much direction as possible.

Another possibility, said Heru, thus mixing occurs in humans. That is, he said, the human body simultaneously infected with H1N1 and H5N1. For that, the hospitals should be presumed H1N1 is not mixed with H5N1.

One effort that can be done to prevent the occurrence of mixing both the virus, said Heru, is to secure the farm pigs. Security is not to destroy the pigs, but that effort breeder or employees in the pig farm to be exposed to influenza A H1N1. (A-81/A-62) ***

"Residents must be aware they that should go directly to the hospital or the community health centre if experiencing the suspect signs," he said.

Anticipating an explosion of swine flu patients, Agus said he is ready to open a new isolation space, because, available space at this time was limited.

"We will try to treat all available patients," he said.

Dr Harry Susanto the Local Health Section Head, asked the residents to not panic about the spread of swine flu.  According to him, swine flu is not as cruel as bird flu. Nevertheless, his office asked the residents to continue to be on the alert.

"Don't think that if you get swine flu, you will die.  Swine flu is not very different from common flu, so that maintain one's health, and go immediately to the doctor if you re experiencing symptoms," he explained.

Based on hospital personnel records, until now they have had 13 patients who were stated swine flu suspects.  From this number, four were stated positive, two were negative and seven patients were suspect.  Some patients who were stated recovered already had returned.  Another one was still undergoing intensive maintenance in the hospital.

Officials Seek Family of Bird Flu Suspect

http://www.jawapos.co.id/halam...
Jogyjakarta:  For seven days the bird flu suspect patient AMM, 29, has been in a coma in RS Dr Sardjito and has not yet shown the significant development.  AMM entered last August 6 and has not yet been seen by her family.  Until yesterday (12/8), there was not yet a family member that came to ask about the woman from Kediri, East Java, in RS Sardjito.  The RS Sardjito personnel yesterday began to search for the family of AMM.  It is known that she lives in Highway 108, Lirboyo, Mojoroto, Kediri.  The hospital personnel contacted local village officials through the telephone.

"We could only communicate with the head of this hamlet that was named Edi.  After we asked about AMM, it was true that that there was a resident who was named AMM with the characteristics that we described.  We then asked the head of the hamlet to contact the family of AMM.  Until this afternoon we did not yet have confirmation from Edi," explained the staff the Law and Public Relations of RS Dr Sardjito, Banu Hermawan.

As reported, AMM came to RS Sardjito after being delivered by the man named Dhono. Upon entering, AMM was semiconscious so she was not able to communicate.  At night she was increasingly critical and experienced a coma.  Currently she breathes with ventilator aids.  Since that time, Dhono disappeared after leaving three mobile phone numbers with hospital personnel.  Because the number that was given by Dhono could not be contacted, RS Sardjito afterwards traced AMM's history before coming to RS Sardjito.  Based on these results, Dhono also left an address in two different hospitals where AMM was treated previously. That is, Klitren III GK/369 and Klitren III GK/175, Jogjakarta.

"We will not trace the address in Jogjakarta, because, we were convinced that was a fictitious address," said Banu.

The condition for AMM could at this time be said to be very "pitiful".  How in this situation can it be that not one family member accompanied her?  Moreover, RS Dr Sardjito has tried to contact again three mobile phone numbers that were given by Dhono. The Division Head of Law and Public Relations at RS Dr Sardjito, Trisno Heru Nugroho, again asked that anyone who knew AMM that immediately contact RS Sardjito.

"Don worry about the cost.  The bird flu patient is in the same situation as the swine flu patient.  They were not responsible for the cost completely," he stressed.

In the meantime, the other bird flu suspect patient, RR, 12, his situation gradually improved.  Nevertheless, as of yesterday he was not yet permitted to go home.

After experiencing seven days experienced in a coma in RS Dr Sardjito, the bird flu suspect patient AMM, 29, has still not shown significant development in her condition. AMM entered last August 6 and has not yet been seen by her family.  Because until yesterday there were no family members that came to ask about AMM's existence, the woman from Kediri who is in RS Sardjito.  On August 12, the RS Sardjito personnel then began to trace the family of AMM.  Based on the known address of Highway 108 of Lirboyo Mojoroto, Kediri, RS Sardjito has contacted local village officials through the telephone.

"We only could communication with the Head of Dukuhnya who is named Edi.  Afterwe asked about AMM, is it true that there is a resident named AMM who fits the named characteristics. Then we asked that the Head of the Hamlet contact the family of AMM.  Until this afternoon we have not yet received confirmation from Edi," said the Staff of Law and Public Relations of RS Dr Sardjito, Banu Hermawan, to the Jogja Radar.  

As previously reported, AMM was delivered to RS Sardjito by a man named Dhono. When they arrived in the afternoon, AMM's condition was already semiconscious, so she to be able to communicate.  At night, AMM became increasingly critical and fell into a coma, so currently her breathing depends on ventilator aids.  Also since that time, Dhono disappeared after leaving three mobile phone numbers with hospital personnel.  After the mobile phone numbers given by Dhono could not be contacted, RS Sardjito afterwards traced AMM's history before coming to RS Sardjito.  There was additional information that Dhono left address in Klitren III GK/369, and Klitren III GK/175 Jogja in two different hospitals where AMM was treated beforehand.

"We could not trace the available address in Jogja, because we were convinced that this was a fictitious address," added Banu.  Unfortunately, Banu could not give a reason for this conviction.  He only said his office had an available document related to the identity of AMM.

"We had a photocopy of the "Residency Card" belonging to AMM, with an address in Kediri.  We also had a photocopy of the document of AMM's husband, his address was also the same, in Kediri.  So we will shoot directly to this official address," said Banu.

In the included marriage document, the husband was not Dhono alias Dimas Hastuningrat.  In this way it could be concluded that the man who admitted to being named Dhono was not the husband of AMM..

The condition and the situation for AMM could at this time be said to be very 'pitiful'. Why not?  In this situation, why did not any family accompany her?  Moreover, RS Dr Sardjito has also tried to contact again the three mobile phone numbers that were given by Dhono.  One of them that was received was a number belonging to the owner.  After being asked whether or not he knew AMM, the owner of this number said he knew her, and claimed she was his cousin.  However when being asked to visit RS Sardjito to see AMM, the owner of the number refused without reason.  Of course this has increasingly raised the question, who in fact is AMM?  The Division Head of Law and Public Relations of RS Dr Sardjito, Trisno Heru Nugroho, again ask for to anyone who knew AMM to immediately contacted RS Sardjito.

"Please for her family, if they want to meet AMM here.  If it is a matter of the cost, don't worry. The matter of the bird flu patient is the same as with the swine flu patient, the cost will be picked up completely," stressed Heru.

Yesterday (14/8 ), AMM has begun realised although his condition was still weak. He also has been seldom could communicate with the doctor used the sign of the hands. Beforehand, the side of RSUP Dr Sardjito could pessimistic would recovery of AMM. Because, the patient who it was known came from Kediri and was not known by his family has been given the ventilator to help his breathing. Moreover for the last two days he was given central venna pressure (CVP), a kind of aid for the circulation of blood on his body. The opportunity remained his life then only around 40 percent.

Therefore, realised him AMM was something that was startling.

This illness was not inferior serious with the bird flu illness, because also involved a deadly risk. Moreover, this illness also was infeksius (really spread). Because of that the doctor obliged AMM to continue to be isolated.

By being known by the illness actually that was suffered by AMM, necessarily he has been in the other ward, not in Space of Isolasi Kartika as is now the case. Necessarily he was isolated in other space in accordance with his illness, obviously Heru without wanting to mention the illness that was suffered by AMM.

Because his condition showed the prognosis that increasingly improved, slowly AMM weaned from the ventilator implement. From time to time this implement was opened so that he could breathe personally. AMM then could have communicated with point upwards his hands to the nurse if his infusion almost was finished. Estimated in 2 - 3 days in the future, his ventilator will be released. Nevertheless, RS Dr Sardjito continued to look for the AMM family, by carrying out the co-ordination with social worker RS Dr Sardjito, a team that especially handled the social problem of the patient.

In the meantime, yesterday RS Dr Sardjito also was with 14 Japanese residents. The 14 people were the friend KH and M., the Japanese resident who was carrying out the visit to UGM. Because felt worried spread the virus of pig flu (H1N1) that it was suspected was carried by KH and M., they in a crowd visited RS Sardjito to in-screening. From results screening, all of them were stated safe.

But the afternoon, came again one Japanese resident had the initials Y, 25, that it was suspected was ill H1N1. Y was then stated suspect because of experiencing the sign that be the same as illness pig flu.

M. that already four days was in Space of Isolasi Kartika to be isolated, yesterday, was permitted to come home because of showing recovery. So that remained at this time in this space was KH and Y. Both still experienced the high fever on 38 levels celcius.

Jakarta:  The number of positive cases of pig flu in the homeland continues to increase. The Body of Research and Development Department of Health (Balitbangkes) yesterday reported 36 cases of people with A influenza (H1N1).  That means that cumulatively the positive cases of A influenza in Indonesia has reached 908 people. The spread of this virus also covers 24 provinces. The Director General of the Control of the Illness and Environmental Sanitation (P2PL) the Department of Health, Prof Tjandra Yoga Aditama, explained that the spreading of the virus H1N1 through the provinces could not be prevented.

"It is not possible to prevent the residents going on a trip of  the province passage," he said yesterday (18/8).  

At this time, said Tjandra, what could be done was to avoid contact with the sufferer. Because H1N1 was spread through direct contact from human to human through the cough, sneezes, or the objects that have been touching by the sufferer. Therefore, the spread is very fast.  

"As many as 24 provinces have been infected," he said.

According to Tjandra, the Department of Health has made an optimal effort to slow down the spread of H1N1, in part by using the provisions of thermal scanners and health alert cards in the Health Office of the Port (KKP).  Moreover, they have also prepared the reconciliation hospitals.  The virus inspection H1N1 in the Department of Health Laboratory also continues to be carried out and the diagnosis produced by this virus speeded up.

"The Department of Health," said Tjandra, " has also asked the province governments to conduct community surveillance."

That is, ask the community that has rather difficult flu sickness to report to the community health centre. While those who suffered difficult flu were appealed to to report to the hospital. The community health centres in the area also was mobilised.  The patient H1N1 with the obligatory difficult condition was reconciled to the hospital. Tjandra explained that the budget to overcome swine flu was quite big, because it was being taken from the bird flu budget.

Bintan:  The Bintan Agriculture Service said that Bird Flu or H1N5 has entered Bintan. This was expressed from results of the blood sample inspection from chickens who died suddenly belonging to residents in the Paya Lebar Village, Tanjunguban, Kecamatan Bintan Utara.
"From inspection of the chickens that died in two locations the results were positive bird flu. The sample of blood that was taken from the residents' chickens, evidently the virus H1N5 was in the figure of 10 thousand per millilitre. This was the first case in Bintan," said Drh Setyo Rahardjo, Coordinator of Participatory Disease Surveillance and Response (PDSR) the Bintan Agriculture Service, on Tuesday (18/8).

With the implements that are owned by the Bintan Agriculture Service, if the virus has reached 10 thousand per milli litre blood, at once it could be detected.  If it is under this figure, the implement could not detect the existence of bird flu.  Following this positive bird flu, officials with the residents immediately carried out the extermination of the chickens in this village yesterday. The extermination activity of the chicken was to anticipate the spread of bird flu that apparently experienced various hindrances. The first hindrance was the objection from several residents who loved their kept animals. Moreover, there were also residents who claimed the chickens were just very healthy. The residents' objections were finally completed after the Agriculture Service gave the briefing about prevention efforts of bird flu before the virus spreads.

"Finally the residents understood and gave up their poultry willingly," said Setyo.

To prevent the spreading of the plague and the infection of pig flu (H1N1), PT Great Giant Pineapple (GGP) held a special seminar to discuss this matter.  The day-long seminar with speaker and Pulmonary Disease Specialist, Dr. Mohamad Junus, Sp.P., took place in the Serbaguna Building (GSG) Kopkar Dwi Karya, Lampung Tengah, on Wednesday (19-8).  

"The plague and the infection of pig flu (H1N1) could happen to humans sporadically since the clinical signs generally are the same as seasonal influenza.  Clinically the signs from light (infection asymtomatic) to heavy (pneumonia) can cause death.  Swine flu does not spread to humans through food that is truly processed.  The swine flu virus dies with the heating temperature at 70 Celsius levels," said Mohamad.

The seminar this day was filled up by hundreds of participants who consisted of employees, students, and the community around the company.  Present and at the same time opening the agenda was the CRD Manager PT GGP Mahfud Santoso, Kabag Healt and Savety Kemas Abdul Hamid, and Kabag Internal CRD Widyo Wicaksono.  Three subtypes of the swine flu virus are H1N1 (most), H3N2, H1N2, generally host specific (the restriction antarspecies).  Pigs can be also infected with the avian influenza virus and the human seasonal influenza virus as well as the swine flu virus.  The gene segment can exceed specific barriers by means of genetic reassortment process.

"The infection of the influenza virus (H1N1) could happen to someone with acute febrile respiratory illness that has close contact within 7 days time with an infectious H1N1 influenza virus case.  Or 7 days time they went on a trip to another area or foreign country where there were H1N1 influenza cases.  And or lived in a community that had cases of influenza (H1N1)," said Mohamad.

It is best to prepare early, says Erni, a Cianjur resident.  Her husband, who suffers a tumor, will immediately be operated on in Hasan Sadikin Hospital, Bandung, in the near future.

"His date is not yet determined, but now my husband can prepare for the operation calmly," said Erni.

She claimed she was relieved because a week previously she really had difficulty finding an empty place in several hospitals.  Officials in several hospitals said there were a large number of patients who entered in June-July-August, alias the rainy season.  A similar concern was experienced by Susilawati from the Sukabumi City who was waiting for her husband to be treated in RSHS.  From the news in the mass media, she knew that during this season many people were sick.  The cause is that the transition from the rainy season to the dry season triggers many illnesses, especially the upper respiratory tract infection (ISPA) and influenza.

"Now I the routinely used a mask. Do not get sick and eventually having difficulty getting into a hospital.  Moreover, now is the height of the spreading of influenza A-H1N1," said Susilawati.

The RSHS (hospitals) feel the current explotion of patients.  Director RSHS Cissy Kartasasmita admitted to feeling overwhelmed at receiving the reconciliation patients. Often these patients were children and those with internal disease. Cissy worried that would this would affect the quality of the health service.  Learning from these experiences, RSHS began define limitations and the special condition for the patients to spend the night.

"This needed help from the referring hospitals.  They must see any patients who are appropriate or possibly still could be handled personally," he said.

Rumah Sakit Santosa Bandung International Hospital Director (SBIH), Efo Prapriatna, responded positively.  Some time before, when the West Java Health Service asked private hospital to be ready to help handle A-H1N1 influenza sufferers, SBIH said he was ready to receive patients whenever the treatment was appropriate.  Efo said that SBIH had the experience in treating bird flu suspect patients.  SBIH also has an isolation space with the capacity of nine beds.  The experience of treating bird flu patients could be used in receiving the influenza patients A-H1N1.

Over 40 killed as diseases hit Papua New Guinea
http://www.theaustralian.news....

PORT MORESBY: An outbreak of cholera and another of suspected swine flu in separate parts of a Papua New Guinean province have killed up to 41people.

PNG Health Minister Sasa Zibe confirmed the cases of cholera after World Health Organisation workers found the disease was responsible for seven deaths in Morobe Province, on the north coast.

Scores of other unexplained deaths are expected to be either cholera or the influenza A(H1N1) virus, commonly known as swine flu, said PNG Department of Health secretary Clement Malau.

"There have been two outbreaks in two different parts of Morobe Province - Menyamia and Wasu. We've confirmed cholera in Wasu, and are trying to assess whether the other disease is swine flu or an influenza strain," he said.

"At the moment, we want to contain and establish the cause of both outbreaks. We are very concerned and hope cholera hasn't established itself in PNG, as it would be another great burden to an already strained health system."

Over the past month, PNG health officials have received information about a mystery illness causing havoc in Morobe.

Mr Zibe said on Friday: "As this is the first reported (cholera) case, the government will now be reporting this to the WHO as part of the requirement under the international health regulation."

He urged villagers with cholera symptoms to report to rural health facilities.

WHO's PNG representative, Eigil Sorensen, said: "PNG last saw cholera in the 1960s, so has not seen anything like it in the last 40 to 50 years.

"There's some belief maybe it's come from marine life. Shellfish have been responsible in other cases overseas.

"We've confirmed six or seven deaths but are carrying out more tests."

Komnas FBPI intensified various nonmedical preparedness, in part by carrying out the socialization in the regional governments and carrying out the desktop simulation desktop (the simulation of policy severing during serious emergency).  This kind of simulation trained various service officials to undertake community service functions, the control body of the regional disaster, the social organization, the non-governmental organzsation, the local media, and the community religious figures to coordinate in planning the preceptive response to the emergency and to take decisions if the pandemic spreads and this virus becomes increasingly deadly.  Komnas FBPI, with help of various member departments carried out the simulation of this kind in almost all the Indonesian provinces with Unicef Indonesia with the Canadian government support through Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA).

"Unicef Indonesia helped developed the non-medical capacity of the Indonesian Government in responding to the pandemic, especially in the field of risk communication," said the media's consultant of Unicef Indonesia that handles bird flu communication and the pandemic, Arie Rukmantara. "In the long run, later all the works and the tasks in responding to the pandemic by Unicef or other international agencies will be taken over, will be handled by the country in order to protect the citizens," said Memed.

The patient who entered on Sunday (30-8) was Ja (26), a resident of the Sukamenanti District, Kedaton.  Ja, who had experienced a headache, a fever, and breathlessness for the two previous days, was forced to be delivered by his family to RSUAM.  Ja immediately was treated intensively and was put into isolation space.  The bird flu suspect patients who have been handled were In, No, De, and Re.  All of them were residents of Sukamenanti. Now Re (8) and De (8) last week were brought to RSUAM, because of the same symptoms.  However, after being checked, the doctor suggested that both of them only undergo treatment at home.

By his family, De was taken home.  Both of them were given medicine that came from RSUAM.  Nevertheless, apparently the condition of De also did not improve.  Finally the family agreed to bring De back to RSUAM on Thursday.  He underwent treatment in hospital.  A similar condition also happened to Re.  Her health condition also was not improving.  Afterwards relatives brought the child to RSUAM.  Eka, the mother of Re, suspected that her daughter was infected with bird flu because she often dropped by the chicken coop belonging to their neighbour who was known to have many that died suddenly several days ago.  This SD student was immediately treated in isolation space. Eka (23), the wife of Ja who was placed in RSUAM, said for three days her husband experienced the fever and the headache.  Afterwards Ja was taken to the community health centre.  After taking medicine that was given by the community health centre, his condition did not improve.  Ja was afterwards taken again to the community health centre. Then by the nurse in the community health centre, Ja was reconciled to RSUAM because of being suspected as infected with bird flu.

The medical official at RSUAM said all the bird flu suspect patients had blood and saliva samples taken.

This is the second time Stevens-Johnson Syndrome has been mentioned, so it may be on its way to becoming the new "malaria" in Indonesian journalism.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S...

Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) is a life-threatening condition affecting the skin in which cell death causes the epidermis to separate from the dermis. The syndrome is thought to be a hypersensitivity complex affecting the skin and the mucous membranes. Although the majority of cases are idiopathic, the main class of known causes is medications, followed by infections and (rarely) cancers.

SJS is a rare condition, with a reported incidence of around 2.6 per million people per year.  1
In the United States, there are about 300 new diagnoses per year.

SJS is thought to arise due to a disorder of the immune system.

It can be caused by infections (usually following infections such as herpes simplex virus, influenza, mumps, cat-scratch fever, histoplasmosis, Epstein-Barr virus, or similar), adverse effects of drugs (allopurinol, diclofenac, etravirine, fluconazole,(2) valdecoxib, sitagliptin, oseltamivir, penicillins, barbiturates, sulfonamides, phenytoin, azithromycin, modafinil(3), lamotrigine, nevirapine, ibuprofen(4), ethosuximide, carbamazepine)(5)(6), malignancy (carcinomas and lymphomas), or idiopathic factors (up to 50% of the time).

SJS usually begins with fever, sore throat, and fatigue, which is misdiagnosed and usually treated with antibiotics. Ulcers and other lesions begin to appear in the mucous membranes, almost always in the mouth and lips but also in the genital and anal regions. Those in the mouth are usually extremely painful and reduce the patient's ability to eat or drink. Conjunctivitis of the eyes occurs in about 30% of children who develop SJS. A rash of round lesions about an inch across arises on the face, trunk, arms and legs, and soles of the feet, but usually not the scalp.(1)

SJS proper (with less than 10% of body surface area involved) has the mortality rate of around 5%.

Coalition of A-H1N1 and Other Viruses Studied
September 2, 2009
http://kesehatan.kompas.com/re...
The concern about "coalition" of the virus A-H1N1 with another influenza virus strain evidently is unproven.  The latest research proved that when the virus H1N1 was put in a room that contained another influenza virus strain, they will not gather to a new virus because the virus H1N1 will dominate.  This is based on results of the newest research reported by researchers from Maryland University, U.S.  During this research, researchers infected a civet animal with the virus H1N1.  Although the coalition of the virus did not happen, the animal that was infected by two kinds of the flu virus experienced serious signs and more easily spread the virus, or that which the researchers acknowledged as the virus H1N1 2009.  From results of this research, it is not surprising that currently the virus H1N1 influenza strain is the most dominant in the world.  The researchers also were not too again worried that virus would gathered virus and mutate to become a newer, more cruel virus. Currently that was attention of the experts was how quickly this virus H1N1 spread to various countries.

"The results of this study show how the virus H1N1 2009 surpassed the other influenza viruses and is more easily spread.  Although this research is still early, we stressed the need for immediate flu virus vaccinations," said Dr Anthony Fauci, the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease, the USA.  

Although the existence of the coalition of the influenza virus is unproven, the Head of the Bird Flu University Airlangga Laboratory, Surabaya, CA Nidom, said that what must be worrisome is the coalition between the flu virus A-H1N1 and the virus H5N1.  When the coalition of two viruses happens, it is worried that there will emerge a very cruel new virus that is easy to spread.  Because of that Nidom believed the government ought to begin to carry out the mapping of the areas that enable the coalition of the two viruses.

Bird flu could be overcome if the community would apply clean living habits, such as cleaning the chicken coop every day, not selling the diseased chickens, not throwing away the chicken carcass at random, or throwing chickens that suddenly died into the river current, or making an alternative pen that surrounds the house.  Until today the total chicken that died suddenly were 132 tails.  The chickens that were burnt were 27 tails, whereas the rest of them were buried.  He also sent this message concerning the symptoms, the prevention and medical treatment.  He also made a plea that chickens that were sick and the egg that was not yet cleaned should not be kept in the refrigerator.  The ferocity of bird flu could be also spread through fertilizer that comes from the waste of the chicken as crop fertilizer.

Separately the lung specialist doctor Dr. Pad Padilangga said that bird flu suspect  patients that were in Isolation Space, Nova, Indah, and Juliyanto, were returned today. Whereas Resa was still undergoing the maintenance in Isolation Space.  Initially Resa was a bird flu, but results of the laboratory showed that Resa was positively infected with flu (H1N1).  According to Eka, he did not yet have laboratory results from the medical team.  He was really stricken because his child was sentenced as positive for swine flu.

"I am worried that friends of Resa will not want to play with Resa if they know that Resa is infected with swine flu (H1N1)," said Eka.

The Sanglah Central Hospital in Bali has reported another death from the deadly H1N1 flu that has been spreading across Indonesia.

The hospital's attending physicians said Friday that Ni Wayan Siti, 19, died from the virus last Thursday night.

Siti was the latest fatal victim of the H1N1 flu, taking the nationwide death toll to six.

Laboratory results confirmed the young woman had contracted the H1N1 virus.

"We are still waiting for the results from the additional laboratory tests because there are indications that she had also contracted the H5N1 avian flu virus," the hospital's avian flu mitigation team secretary Ken Wirasandhi said Friday.

In order to prevent the further spread of the virus, the hospital's team took over the duty of the victim's family to cleanse and wrap the deceased's body in a burial shroud.

"We also have specifically asked the family not to open the shroud to prevent any possible infection," he added.

Deadly H1N1 virus claims another life in Bali

Mon, 09/07/2009 1:41 PM | Bali

The Sanglah Central Hospital in Bali has reported another death from the deadly H1N1 flu that has been spreading across Indonesia.

The hospital's attending physicians said Friday that Ni Wayan Siti, 19, died from the virus last Thursday night.

Siti was the latest fatal victim of the H1N1 flu, taking the nationwide death toll to six.

Laboratory results confirmed the young woman had contracted the H1N1 virus.

"We are still waiting for the results from the additional laboratory tests because there are indications that she had also contracted the H5N1 *avian flu* virus," the hospital's avian flu mitigation team secretary Ken Wirasandhi said Friday.

He said the patient had died from multiple organ failure.

In order to prevent the further spread of the virus, the hospital's team took over the duty of the victim's family to cleanse and wrap the deceased's body in a burial shroud.

"We also have specifically asked the family not to open the shroud to prevent any possible infection," he added.

The victim was a resident of Tampaksiring village in Gianyar regency.

She was admitted to Sanglah Central Hospital, the largest medical facility on the island, on Aug. 29, 2009.

She was eight months pregnant at the time.

However three days after she was admitted, her unborn baby died.

The attending physicians said the baby died from an oxygen deficiency.

Siti was having breathing difficulty at that time and apparently the condition affected her baby.

Separately, Bali health agency head I Nyoman Sutedja said he had yet to receive the laboratory results for Siti.

"I haven't received the official results yet. But, I have been informed the victim lived in close proximity to a fowl population and that some of those fowls had suddenly died recently," he said.

So far, the island's hospitals have treated a total of 83 individuals in H1N1-related cases, 42 of which were foreigners.

The resort island's health authority has never released official figures about the number of positive H1N1 cases, claiming that such authority lies with the Health Ministry in Jakarta.

By Aug. 23, the ministry recorded 57 new cases of H1N1 flu, taking the country's total number of confirmed cases to 1,005 in over 24 provinces across the country.

The director general of disease control and environmental health at the ministry, Tjandra Yoga Aditama, said the ministry was still taking all precautionary measures to prevent any further cases.

The World Health Organization has confirmed hundreds of deaths globally from the H1N1 virus, which has spread to 160 countries, but health experts say the figure does not reflect the true number of people killed by the virus.
