They said it is most common in asia, just as YHW said. there have been MANY cases but only 8 "confirmed" deaths so i think its not fatal to everyone since out of MANY only 8 die.

they said the symptoms are like a cold..i forgot the rest of what the symptoms were..but i dont think this is the last we've heard about it.

If the symptoms are just like the cold... I could have it and think I'm just sick with a cold and not bother to see a Doctor. The sickness would get worse and by the time I see a Doctor, the sickness has progressed and I am far sicker and harder to treat. I'm willing to bet catching this thing early will greatly increase the chanses of living through it. From what I read It does not sound that fatal.

Well, now it's possibly here in Finland also. Authorities reported a case where some woman who had recently been in Vietnam is being treated for severe respiratory difficulties and high fever.
Hope it's not the same infection spreading.

Default Mystery Pneumonia Tracked to Hong Kong Hotel

Article 03/19/03 reprinted on WIRED site from Reurters:

"Mystery Pneumonia Tracked to Hong Kong Hotel "

http://wireservice.wired.com/wired/s...storyId=680765

Also here:
http://www.iht.com/articles/90362.html

Sounds a little like Legionnaires Disease.

(perhaps this thread should be moved to an other forum?)

It is possible for the status of a reported case to change over time. SARS is a diagnosis of exclusion. This means that whenever a known cause is found that could fully account for a patient's clinical condition, this patient should no longer be considered to be a case of SARS.

+The Chinese authorities have reported suspect and probable cases in Guangdong province. Figures are being updated.

′ Cumulative number of cases includes number of deaths.

* No documented secondary transmission in-country. No affected areas.

**One death attributed to Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of China occurred in a case medically transferred from Viet Nam.
