Today the machine translations of the Indonesian press (thanks to the hard working folks at FluWiki) report that the father of this little three year old has refused hospital treatment and removed him from their care.
According to one of the machine translated articles the child was sent with medication (Tamiflu), instructions for care, and he is being checked on once a day by local health care personnel.
So, it really does appear that we have had a mild case of H5N1. Egypt has seen several, but not this mild.
The world needs viral samples from this child, as well as a serious effort to attempt to pinpoint his route of infection.
