JAKARTA, Indonesia -- A 67-year-old Indonesian woman died of bird flu overnight, the second death in as many days, taking the country's human death toll from the disease to 54, Health Ministry and hospital officials said Monday.

The woman had contact with chickens in the town of Cisarua, West Java province, before falling sick and being admitted to hospital on Oct. 10, said spokesman Runizar Roesin of the National Bird Flu Information Center. She died late Sunday, Roesin said, a day after an 11-year-old Indonesian boy with the disease died in a Jakarta hospital.

See complete coverage of efforts to contain avian flu, including an interactive graphic on the science of the virus and a look back at major flu epidemics.

Indonesian has the bulk of the world's human infections of the virulent H5N1 strain of bird flu, most of them contracted from domestic fowl. The World Health Organization fears the virus could mutate into a form that easily spreads among humans and could spark a pandemic.

The WHO said the virus passed among humans in one large cluster of infections in a single family on Sumatra Island earlier this year, causing fears it had become more infectious and could spark a pandemic. However, the virus didn't spread beyond the blood family members.

Indonesia, the fourth largest country in the world, has been criticized for failing to aggressively attack the virus in poultry. It claims it cannot afford wide-scale vaccination or compensation for farmers if it carries out mass preventive cullings.
