The brother and sister, aged 10 and 5, admitted to Bali’s Sanglah General Hospital and diagnosed as infected with the H5N1 (Avian Flu) virus on Friday, October 7, 2011, have died.

The two children, Wayan Aldiawan (10) and Nengah Rika Ani (5), died over a three-hour period during the night of Sunday October 9, 2011, while being warded in the Nusa Indah Isolation Ward  of Sanglah General Hospital reserved for patients suspected of suffering from infectious diseases.

Prior to their deaths, the two children were diagnosed as suffering from the H5N1 virus via tests conducted at the Sanglah General Hospital and the Faculty of Medicine at Udayana University. Results of similar confirmatory tests conducted by the Indonesian Ministry of Health in Jakarta have now also confirmed the children were infected with the H5N1 virus. 

During their period of hospitalization the children were treated with Tamflu and other drugs in an unsuccessful effort to stabilize their conditions.

Prior to being moved to Denpasar, the two children were warned In Bagli. Before falling ill, the children were known to  have been in close contact with chickens that suddenly died, fueling suspicions that they may have contracted Bird Flu.

World Health Organization (WHO) reports that Indonesia has had more than 148 deaths linked to bird flu, the highest number for any nation.

The parents of the dead chldren are now threatening the Bangli Hospital with a legal claim, contending that the hospital's lateness in correctly diagnosing the diseases delayed correct treatment resulting in the two's deaths.
