Submission + - New SARS-Like Virus Infects Both Human and Animal Cells->

sciencehabit writes: A SARS-like virus discovered this summer in the Middle East may infect more than just humans. The pathogen, a close cousin to the one that caused the 2002 to 2003 SARS outbreak, may also be able to infect cells from pigs and a wide range of bat species, researchers report today.
