Has anyone heard of the virus that has killed 14 horses and a trainer in
Queensland?
Just very interetsed.  The Horses went off their food, then had trouble
breathing and died, and the trianer exhibited the same symptoms and was
hosptialised, ending up on respirators and a dyalsis machine, and died
today.

Suggestions as to what it is? Not being very virology minded is this cross
species transfer very unusual?
