A 28-year-old mother has died of bird flu at a Jakarta hospital, bringing the total death toll from the disease to 92 in Indonesia, the local press said Tuesday.
The woman, a mother of two in the Jakarta suburb of Tangerang, died during treatment at the Persahabatan Hospital early on Monday, reported major national newspaper Kompas.
Her relatives said she had suffered respiratory problems, high fever and severe pneumonia since last week.
When she was admitted to the hospital, her conditions were already at worst.
"Test results by the Health Ministry's research and development center confirms that (she) is positive of having H5N1 virus," I Nyoman Kandun, a senior official with the ministry, told the newspaper.
Indonesia is the hardest hit by the avian influenza with a record 114 confirmed cases in humans and 92 deaths.
