Two young siblings in the Jakarta suburb of Tangerang have died recently of suspected bird flu, which could bring total fatalities of the disease to 34 if confirmed by the World Health Organization, a report said Friday.
The siblings died earlier this week after being treated at Sulianti Saroso hospital here for developing bird flu symptoms.
Their house is located only 100 meters from a chicken slaughter house, reported the Detikcom news website.
Yohana, 7, died late Thursday or three days after brother Toni, 10, died at the same hospital.
The EHO has so far confirmed 32 bird flu fatalities in Indonesia.
