suuuuup with the mystery illness in asia?
I think it's called SARS
well from what i can gather its a flu like illness, im just hoping they can confine it to asia!!! it sounds nasty
yeah there's no cure an the scarey thing is it's killing people...there have been signs of the virus in the U.S too but the had been traveling from asia...
Some reported cases across Canada too.
I hear that a few cases have broken out in the us
it is not airborne but is transmitted thru fluids i think...it has spread to canada and australia....i think uk also
passed through fluids...whew i thought it was a airborne virus?
that's it...there's no place on the face on the earth that is safe any more! :'(
Awwww..... not true dcd.... we're safe in your heart
Jeanie, you have this way of making people feel safe. Thank you.
If this were another thread I'd have to sneak pillow-attack you just to disabuse you of that notion...
(change the subject, my way of being thankful when I'm touched..... I'm kinda lame that way...... thanks(
What are the simtoms of SARS?
Similar to the flu with an emphasis on upper respiratory issues.... But a search of the web will net better results that my IN-expertise
one victim died of Sever Acute Respiratory Syndrome(SARS) in my country although the 4 other reported cases are not confirmed yet..it's dangerous to travel to Singapore and China right now..ppl wear face masks at the international airport..and it's hard to confirm a case since the symptoms are similar
why are peole wearing masks if it is not airborne transferable?
If, as they say, its related to the corona virus, then it transfers through the little droplets of mucus/saliva that flow so freely when you have cold/flu symptoms. I suppose the masks ensure that you avoid someone else's sneezy goo.....
They Quarantined a plane that landed in Canada the other day, because of S.A.R.S. That can't be good thing!
Perhaps SARS is mother earth's way of ridding herself of those itchy little things all over her body.......
man, SARS is even scarier than aids
