Originally Answered: What the sars disease?
Severe acute respiratory syndrome
viral respiratory disease caused by the coronavirus
SARS may be suspected in a patient who has:
Any of the symptoms, including a fever of 38 °C (100 °F) or higher, and
Either a history of:
Contact (sexual or casual) with someone with a diagnosis of SARS within the last 10 days OR
Travel to any of the regions identified by the World Health Organization (WHO) as areas with recent local transmission of SARS (affected regions as of 10 May 2003 were parts of China, Hong Kong, Singapore and the town of Geraldton, Ontario, Canada).
For a case to be considered probable, a chest X-ray must be positive for atypical pneumonia or respiratory distress syndrome.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has added the category of “laboratory confirmed SARS” for patients who would otherwise be considered “probable” but who have not yet had a positive chest X-ray changes, but have tested positive for SARS based on one of the approved tests (ELISA, immunofluorescence or PCR).
When it comes to the chest X-ray the appearance of SARS is not always uniform but generally appears as an abnormality with patchy infiltrates
Originally Answered: What’s the SARS virus?
Nothing has been found by any Level 4 Microbiology lab 2003 to today, and would’ve by now, and years ago, if were real. Only papers speculating or disputing possibilities like some hyper infectious deadly coronavirus. SARS is a creature topic of unsupported medical journal literature. Whatever it was wasn’t infectious as a GTA nurse, claimed to have SARS, with no evidence, living and commuting from Peterborough, but never infected any family member, established.
SARS: Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (where syndrome medically means nobody has any idea as to cause) is a made up term, and the second edition. The original was Sudden Acute [RS]. Only an ad or PR firm could invent such a mundane term or the World Health Organization. The term doesn’t say anything specific or lend any greater distinction from pneumonia or staph infection or run over by a golf cart on the 6th fairway, either incident being sudden and severe respiratory distress.
In 2003, in what passed for a municipal healthcare network in Toronto, which is bush league, the network panicked. Hospitals shuttered their doors. Patient transfers ceased. Many elements of the healthcare system ran and hid. Nobody knew what was going on; nobody knew who was in charge; no identification of any novel foreign pathogen happened; no game plan. Just panic, where ER doctors and nurses overreacted by administering lethal prescription medications to hospital admissions with pneumonia.
Not one death certificate from 2003 GTA contains the term SARS. And after the panic subsided there was no noticeable difference in the standard morbidity and mortality rates for that year. Nothing, other than panic, happened. There never was or is a SARS virus.
