Human AI in Indonesia has now spread into 12 provinces,including West Java, Jakarta, Banten, North Sumatra, East Java, Central Java, Lampung, South Sulawesi,West Sumatra, South Sumatra, Riau, and Bali. Until 2011, the total human AI cases were 182 cases with150 deaths. This study was conducted to identify of H5N1 AI virus in birds in area surrounding a humanAI human case in Bekasi city in March 2011 and to investigate its role in the spread of AI to humans usingmethods of Hemaglutination Inhibition (HI ), and Reverse Transcriptase-Polymerase Chain Reaction(RT-PCR). The result showed that 80% of birds in the area surrounding AI surrounding H5N1 AI humancase in Bekasi 2011 were antibody negative against H5N1-AI virus. Antibody against H5N1-AI viruswith the titer less than 4 log 2 was detected in 4.4% of birds and with antibody titer 04 4-7 log 2 in 15%of birds. By RT-PCR, H5N1 AI virus was not detected in 47.6% of bird samples. H5 positive and N1negative AI virus was detected in 30.2% samples. Only 11.2% samples showed positive for H5N1 AI virus.The results suggest that H5N1-AI virus affecting birds may have a positive role in transmitting to thevirus to human in Bekasi 2011.
