SARS has been spreading rapidly in Asia, is/could Japan (be) affected?
Just how bad is the virus? As per CNN news, the virus can be transmited mostly by coughing or sneezing but it is also possible that the virus spread by airborne transmission or by inhabiting surfaces such as doorknobs.
It seems that only 3.8% of the people affected by SARS dies; the others will recover within seven days. Exactly who are the "3.8%"? young, old,female,male?
Has Japan found people with SARS symptoms?
