Top Scientist Doubts SARS Link To Coronavirus

Only 40% Of SARS Patients Show Link, The National Post - Canada, 4-28-3, "The death toll from SARS rose again yesterday, bringing to 15 the number of people who have died from the disease in Canada ... Although coronavirus is still a leading candidate, many scientists believe SARS may be linked to human paramyxovirus, identified by Dr. Plummer's lab several weeks ago as a potential cause. However, other researchers think the virus is simply an "innocent bystander" that just happens to be present in many people, including SARS patients."
