You know what occurred to me (or re-curred, better to say) is that Indonesia's high death rate in their human H5 cases is due to under-reporting. This case was in Jakarta, the last one was in Bali where upscale vacationers go... what is happening out in the burbs, for crying out loud?? I'm starting to think, the silence you get out of Indonesia is even less reassuring than the silence out of China. Indo's the hottest hot spot of all, except maybe for Egypt.
