Lethal Strain of Avian Flu Is Reported Found in Pigs in China

Also from today's New York Times: "A senior Chinese health official disclosed on Friday that her country had found a lethal strain of avian influenza among pigs at several farms, a discovery that could move the virus a step closer to becoming a potentially deadly problem for people.

The discovery of the strain in pigs is alarming, health officials said, because scientists have long regarded pigs as an important conduit for new influenza strains to infect people. "
