JAKARTA, Indonesia -- A nine-year-old boy died from bird flu hours after he was admitted to a hospital, becoming the 51st confirmed fatality in Indonesia, a senior health official said yesterday.

The country also reported another suspected bird-flu death, while four patients showing symptoms of the virus were being treated in hospitals.

The boy died Friday in Jakarta, nine days after he first showed symptoms of the virus, including high fever and difficulty breathing, said Nyoman Kandun , director-general of disease control and environmental health at the Indonesian Ministry of Health. Dr. Kandun said the boy had recent contact with infected chickens.

In the west Javanese town of Bandung, a 23-year-old man died after showing symptoms of the virus but before tests could be performed, and his brother was being treated in a hospital, a local health official said. Both became ill after feeding dead chickens to their dogs.

Separately, three members of the same family were being treated as suspected cases in Medan city on Sumatra island, a nurse said. Details of their conditions weren't released.

The H5N1 strain of bird flu has killed at least 144 people world-wide since it started ravaging poultry stocks in Asia three years ago, according to the World Health Organization.
