What's your gut feeling about SARS? Also, now that we're past the point of extreme hunger in China, why do all the major new flu and flu like diseases start there? If it was only poverty, starvation, and crowded conditions other areas are worse. Anyone?

These illnesses begin in China because the Chinese have the habit of interacting with ducks (no joke). The cities have ducks hanging from racks. In addition, the sanitation may be a factor.
Moreover, the Chinese government (communists) do not have the economy to properly prioritize healthcare for their citizens. Thus, you have a governmental run hospital with four dozen staff infected. One wonders how many mechanical ventilators the city hospitals have in their area.
