    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

    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.....

    Perhaps SARS is mother earth's way of ridding herself of those itchy little things all over her body.......
