Your favourite chinese virus has death rate upgraded to 15%

However, the figure is still only an estimate. The final death rate will be known only when the epidemic is over.

And everyone is dead, I guess. 8)

So now only 85% of our people will live?

Sars has left the United States alone. I think it''s because of all the crap we eat. If you can live on Taco Bell and Burger King a little thing like Sars won''t kill you.

Actually, Ulairi, you''d be surprised. We live in a quite sterile environment compared to other countries, or even the US years ago. People from older generations are probably more resistant to bacteria and the like than we are.

I know. I was trying to make a funny.

The US has SARS infections. I''m guessing you''ve not heard about them in your press, but they''ve been reported here in Mexico.

63 infections, 33 recovered.

Here''s the dope, straight from the source.

A couple of scares here in MX, but nothing confirmed yet.

Per capita and deaths, we''re very low. It isn''t an major problem like it is in Asia and was in Canada.
