A two-year-old girl has been admitted to hospital in Indonesia's Riau province for developing bird flu symptoms, local press said Monday.

The girl is being treated at the Arifin Achmad Hospital in the provincial capital of Riau after local laboratory tests and x-ray result indicated that she had bird flu, reported the national Antara news agency.

"She is now undergoing bird flu therapy. Her blood sample was sent to Jakarta today," the hospital's head Dr Azizman Saad was quoted as saying.

Bird flu fatalities in Indonesia have reached a record 83 since the first human case was confirmed in mid 2005.

The latest victim was a 17-year-old housemaid, who died in the Jakarta suburb of Tangerang last Friday.
