SARS: Description and Concerns

SARS is a severe viral illness that was first reported in Asia in February 2003. The illness is characterized by a variety of symptoms including fever, cough, shortness of breath. In a minority of patients (6-9%), SARS may even progress to death. SARS has been reported in North America among persons returning from travel to Asia, among health care workers, and among others in contact with individuals with SARS. Because new outbreaks may occur, workers should be aware of the recommended measures to prevent occupational SARS infection.
