It is always convevient to explain away new scary viruses by saying, "It is those bloody scientists again messing with stuff they don't fully understand and then releasing it to the world."I think Geezer is correct here in that livestock are much more well travelled these days and viruses could easily be transported around. I read somewhere that it is possible to transport the flu virus to the moon by sneezing on equipment and leaving it behind so I think we underestimate how easy it is for these viruses to meet outside the laboratory. OK, the odds are high but that doesn't mean it is impossible. Full evidence is always good.
