12:50 p.m.: Fifty-four uninfected members and contacts of the family hardest-hit by bird flu are under voluntary quarantine in Indonesia, and there are no signs the disease has spread since May 22, the WHO said in an update. The quarantined people - except pregnant women and infants - are taking the antiviral drug Tamiflu as a preventive medication and they are being visited daily by public health teams who check them for symptoms, the WHO said. Seven members of the family died either of confirmed or probable infection with the H5N1 virus. An eighth infected member survived. 

8:50 a.m.: Outbreaks of H5N1 may be underreported in Indonesia and China, and the virus could be more widespread in Africa than authorities know, said experts gathered at a Rome conference on the disease. Poor monitoring and lack of compensation mechanisms that encourage farmers to report animal deaths meant that authorities were not always aware of all outbreaks of the H5N1 virus, animal health experts told reporters. 

6 a.m.: Dutch biotechnology company Crucell NV announced it has started a large study to test a vaccine against avian-flu virus in humans. The trial, performed in collaboration with a team based in Leicester, U.K., will oversee the vaccination of 560 healthy adult individuals, Crucell said. 

2 a.m.: Bird flu killed a 15-year-old boy in Indonesia, a health official said citing local tests, as the country struggled to get a grip on a rise in cases. Indonesia averaged one human bird flu death every 2 1/2 days in May, putting it on pace to soon surpass Vietnam as the hardest-hit country. The boy, from the West Java town of Tasikmalaya, had a history of contact with poultry. He is the third recent victim from the province. Last week, a 10-year-old girl and her 18-year-old brother who lived in another village died of the disease
