Door To Door Home Inspections To Ramp Up In Indonesia
Alarmed by the rising human death toll from bird flu, Indonesian government has planned to conduct door-to-door inspections to prevent the spread of the deadly H5N1 virus.

"The highly pathogenic avian influenza virus has spread to more than two-thirds of the provinces in the vast archipelago country, killing millions of poultry since late 2003.

"Indonesia has millions of chickens and ducks, many in the backyards of rural or urban homes."

Human To Human Bird Flu Infections Being Downplayed
"....little doubt that human-to-human transmission of H5N1 is quite common and now represent the majority of human cases. Representations to the contrary are cause for concern."
