** Bats a 'likely source' of Sars **

A new study finds a virus very like Sars in Chinese bats, indicating they were the likely source of the 2002 outbreak.


Comment from a friend: "notice that Xinhua, pretty much the unofficial "official" mouthpiece of the Chinese government, hasn't "picked up" the story on SARS...or at least I couldn't find it on the main page, the Health page, or SciTech page. Interesting...since they usually pick up on other stories pretty fast...perhaps we'll have to wait for an official Chinese response...or we may never see it appear on the page."

Let us wait...
