YES!!! WE ARE NUMBER ONE, AGAIN!!!
Yes!! We are number one again in the world! On December 26, WHO confirmed the death of a 24 years old in Indonesia caused by the bird flu. She is number 94 in Indonesia, out of 210 humans death caused by the virus since 2003.
Indonesia accounted for almost half of the fatalities.
I don't really see the government is really into this matter. Yes, every now and then, you can see on TV public announcement about this. How we should proceed if we find suddenly died bird or chicken, bla bla bla. But there hasn't been any harsh punishment on people who still keep and sell the sick bird, live or death.
Again, why should government think about this issue? 2009 (the next election date) is a year away, and that's more important!
