Bad Flu-like Outbreak In Hong Kong

At least 3 children have died in Hong Kong after having flu-like symptoms. Doctors and scientists don't know yet if it is a new strain of the flu, or something worse like bird-flu or SARS. BBC has a story up about it.

For those people who think Hong Kong is just a part of China now, this story points out a big difference between the two that makes One Country, Two Systems more than just words. If a health crisis like this happened over the boarder in China the world wouldn't know about it right now.
