    HONG KONG (AP) — Bats carrying a SARS-like virus are unlikely to
    pass it on to humans because they’re too shy, a microbiologist said
    Yuen’s study showed about half of the 25 proteins found in Chinese
    horseshoe bats are 98 percent the same as those in the SARS virus
    found in humans.
