Background information on SARS
(Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome)
Outbreaks of SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) started in Asia in 2003, but spread very quickly around the world. While these outbreaks did lead to six passenger deaths in 2003 after in-flight exposure to virus, the disease has since been brought under control with no known cases anywhere in the world since 2004. However, the virus that causes SARS has not been completely eradicated and represents a potential future threat to the general public
The following SARS information from the US Centers for Disease Control, could be used by passengers, airline professionals, and emergency or medical personnel so that they may be better prepared to deal with any future outbreaks.
