This sounds like they know something more than they are letting on.

I wonder if they are expecting a counter-strike from China for the SARS strike?

ATLANTA -- Fear over the possible return of SARS is so great in the United States that even if the virus does not appear, it will probably cause disruptions in hospitals this winter, top U.S. health officials say.

CDC and other health officials say emergency rooms could be swamped with suspected cases of the disease.

"Whether the virus comes back this winter or not, we will be dealing with SARS," said Dr. James Hughes, director of the National Center for Infectious Diseases of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "When people start showing up with respiratory diseases, physicians will be thinking of SARS."

wouldn't surprise me if SARS does reappear this winter. SARS is a cousin of the common cold, and viruses of that type tend to strike in colder weather for whatever reason. if SARS hits with a vengance, winter is going to suck even more than winter already does.

So the hypoconriacts are going to come running into the hospitals with a running nose complaing of SARS and demanding antibiotics. GREAT!

NyQuil works just fine for me.
