China: Swine virus toll mounts to 19

China: Swine virus toll mounts to 19: "Preliminary probe shows the unknown disease in Sichuan was caused by a kind of a swine virus known as streptococosis II.

The province has reported 80 cases of the infection as of Monday, including 67 confirmed and 13 suspected. Nineteen people have been reported dead and 17 people are in critical condition. Four have been discharged from hospital, the ministry of health said."

If this is true it is a bacterial infection and this is both good and bad.
Antibiotics should work but it will spread more easily.
