One in ten

Good editorial from the WSJ on how this summer may provide mankind a chance to eradicate SARS, just one chance.

In what I find a deeply disturbing irony the journal has that editorial behind their profit making wall; interesting counter point to China’s problems. I can’t believe anybody is taking the Chinese numbers seriously. The first reports of SARS in China were apparently last fall. It has spread fast in both Hong Kong and Toronto. How can it possibly be credible that it hasn’t spread far and wide in China by now?

Worse of all it appears the damn thing is more fatal than previously thought. One in ten, one in seven? Bleck.

If it’s true, and my presumption about China is correct then there must be areas in China which have already been decimated, how could you possible keep that secret? It doesn’t quite add up.
