NEW DELHI: Animal rights activists here have come out with what they call
a simple solution to combat the deadly SARS disease -- go vegetarian.

Activists of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), led
by a member wearing a pig costume and a mask reading "No SARS - Go Veg",
Monday distributed SARS masks with the message "Say no to Pig-Farm Germs"
in this city's commercial hub of Connaught Place.

PETA said the SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) epidemic that is
causing chaos in China and a number of Southeast Asian countries had
originated in a pig farm.

SARS has claimed 613 lives worldwide, mostly in mainland China and Hong Kong.
