Indonesian girl hospitalized with bird flu symptoms 2007-08-03 16:44:26   Print

    JAKARTA, Aug. 3 (Xinhua) -- A 12-year-old girl was admitted to hospital in the Indonesian town of Sukabumi after developing bird flu symptoms, in a country where 80 people have died of the disease, local press said Friday.

    The girl was suspected of having bird flu because she suffered high fever and respiratory problems after contacts with sick chicken, reported the national Antara news agency.

    Hundreds of chickens have died at her neighborhood but it was not immediately known if bird flu was the main cause.

    The medical team took her blood sample for a laboratory test immediately after she arrived at the Syamsudin Hospital in Sukabumi, about 100 km southeast of Jakarta, Thursday evening.
