What is severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS)?

  • SARS is a respiratory illness that has recently been reported in nearly 30 countries. Scientists have determined that SARS is caused by a new member of the coronavirus family.
  • Main symptoms and signs include fever; headache and muscle aches; and cough, shortness of breath, or difficulty breathing.
  • No treatment beyond good intensive and supportive care has been consistently shown to improve prognosis.
  • For current information on the SARS situation, both domestically and internationally, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Web site at http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/sars/.
