    No, cases are pretty isolated in areas.I'm not afraid at all. Lime disease, also, always creates a stir around Ohio in the spring and summer. I got over worrying about it a few years ago. Same way with SARS.

    Sars is just another disease. Lived through discovery of aids in the 80's have nursed more meningococcal septicaemias than I could poke a stick at and daily deal with unknown community aquired nosocomial pneumonias any of which may turn out to be WORSE than SARS.

    Then again i could be struck by a meteorite on the way home from work. Sars is just another..............

    a-rose,
    There is always something out there to cause fear. The question is, do we choose to live in fear? Personally, I choose to not live in fear.

    As Roseanne Roseannadanna used to say on Saturday Night Live (back in the 80's...yes, I'm showing my age), "It's always something!"

    Newly found virus kills West Nile mosquito

    By JEFF NESMITH
    The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
    WASHINGTON -- By figuring out what caused mosquito larvae living in polluted Florida water to become ill, government scientists have isolated a virus lethal to the insects that spread West Nile fever.
    The U.S. Department of Agriculture recently received a patent on a way to use the virus as a mosquito control pesticide and is looking for a private partner to bring the new technology to market. An official said it likely will be at least two years before any commercial use is possible.

    west nile... yeah, that ranks above sars.

    I'm also more scared of getting the flu. I hate throwing up.

    Hi, a-rose, I see you are in China, so your perspective may be quite different from those of us in other parts of the world.

    I do not worry about SARS in my everyday life and work -- I don't give it a thought. However, I would not plan a flight to Asia until more is known about the spread of the illness.
