What is SARS?
What are the symptoms of SARS?
SARS typically begins with a high fever. Other symptoms may include headache, an overall feeling of discomfort, and body aches. Some people may also have mild respiratory symptoms at the outset. Some patients may also have diarrhea.
After 2 to 7 days, SARS patients may start develop a dry cough. This in most cases then leads to the onset of Pneumonia
How is someone diagnosed with SARS?
1. Does the person show the typical symptoms of SARS?
2. Has the person recently traveled to Asia or been in close contact with someone who has?
3. Is the person employed in an occupation that is at risk, or live with someone who is at risk due to occupation?
4. Do they have Pneumonia and there are no other possible causes for the disease?
