Drudge links this report that a “leading doctor” claims SARS could be more dangerous than AIDS. Well, considering that SARS is spread casually while AIDS requires exchange of bodily fluids, that’s not really surprising. The good news, I think, is that because SARS isn’t linked in the public mind to an organized political lobby, we’ll be able to quarantine those infected much more easily.
