Epidemiology, clinical presentation and laboratory investigation of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in Canada, March 2003.
Can Commun Dis Rep. 2003 Apr 15; 29(8):71-5.CC

Abstract

As of 23 March, 2003, 11 cases of SARS have been reported in Canada. Three patients had travelled to China, including Hong Kong SAR. The remaining eight had a history of close contact with cases. There have been three deaths. To date, evidence for human metapneumovirus has been found in six cases; further studies are ongoing to determine whether this virus is the causative agent of the SARS or whether other, so far undetected, pathogens are responsible. Public health measures are being implemented at the local, provincial, and national levels to identify new cases and prevent secondary transmission of SARS.
