The mysterious illness that has killed six residents of a Toronto nursing home and left dozens more sick remains unidentified.

What we do know, is that it is not SARS or bird flu, the two greatest reent pandemic scares.

While public health officials can hardly shrug it off, let's hope that they don't touch off a false panic the way they did with SARS, going on as if the second coming of the Black Death is descending on us.

Hysteria spreads and mutates more quickly than any other virus.
