Sars spread at a HK apartment block baffled doctors
Experts have a new theory on how the Sars illness raced through an entire apartment block in Hong Kong.
They believe that cockroaches may have carried the infection from flat to flat.
The death toll from Sars – Sudden Acute Respiratory Syndrome – continues to mount.
Officially, 98 people have now died worldwide from the severe pneumonia it causes, and the true figure is likely to be over 100 when deaths over the past few days are confirmed by the World Health Organization (WHO).
