JAKARTA - A two year-old Indonesian girl has died after contracting the H1N1 Mexican flu virus, putting the total death by the virus in the country to three out. A total of 662 persons are infected, according to the Department of Health.
The girl underwent treatment in a hospital when she showed respiratory problems, pneumonia and a fever before she died on August 3.
Most new cases in Indonesia in recent days are Indonesians which contracted the virus inside the country. Currently there are almost 200.000 known cases of H1N1 according to the European Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (ECDC). This number however may be grossly underestimated as most cases are light and are not reported to a doctor. Over 1.200 people worldwide have died of the virus.
