Indonesian Teenager Dies of Bird Flu

A teenage girl has died of bird flu in Indonesia, taking the death toll in the nation worst hit by the virus to 79, a health ministry official said Friday.

The 15-year-old died on Tuesday, four days after she was admitted to hospital on the main island of Java, the official said.

She fell ill after handling and eating a dead chicken at her home in Kendal district in Central Java, said Muhammad Nadirin from the ministry's bird flu information centre.

Contact with infected birds is the most common form of transmission of the deadly virus to humans, experts say.

"She became the 79th victim to die," the doctor said.

The government had hoped to halt human deaths from the virus in 2007, and banned the popular practice of keeping poultry in the backyards of homes in the capital Jakarta. But 22 people have perished this year after contracting the virus.

The latest death comes after officials started to distribute kits containing masks, gloves and bars of soap, in a new initiative to fight the virus.

About 100,000 leaders of villages will receive the kits, which also contain educational material about the virus, and urges them to take precautions when handling poultry. The first kits were handed out in Tenggulun Timur village this week in a high-risk area of West Java, officials said.

Vietnam this week reported the virus among poultry has hit 12 provinces, raising concerns about its spread in the nation. It also recently reported i
