Subject: More SARS


"But the greatest fear at WHO is for Africa and other poor regions. "We're 
extremely worried. That was why we put out the global alert," Hall said. 
"People say: 'Only a 4% mortality rate, so few people have died, why 
worry?' But as we saw in Vietnam, when it gets into a hospital, within a 
week 50% of the health care staff are sick. Then it starts to strike at the 
very infrastructure of society. And if it got into the slums of a third 
world city, it would decimate the population.""

In another account, cats are seen as potentially carrying/spreading the 
corona virus/SARS.
