Looking for an optimistic projection? Michael Fumento

National Review Online, May 7[/url]. For more reassurance, turn back to
Fumento's [url=http://www.fumento.com/disease/sars.html]March 26
article[/url] for Scripps Howard News Service. It is good writing and
interesting reading, although I dispute his bias and some of his facts.
Presentations
From the Western Pacific Office of WHO:

      SARS Multi-Country Outbreaks
       http://www.wpro.who.int/sars/wpro_presentation/default.asp, (May 30,
       2003)

      Master Infection Control Presentation

                 i.    Infection Control Measures to Prevent Hospital Transmission
                       - The master document provides an overview of SARS and the patient
                       and health care facilities management required.

                       The following documents are discreet documents taken from the master
                       document with questions at the end of each presentation enabling them
                       to be used as individual teaching tools:

                 ii.   Epidemiology & Clinical Management
                       -This section covers the epidemiology of SARS, case definitions and the
                       clinical management required.

                iii.   Principles of Patient Management
                       -This section covers the essential requirement for patient isolation and
                       strict barrier nursing techniques and the preparations facilities must
                       make, to enable them to safely care for 'suspect' and 'probable' SARS
                       cases and their staff and also to prevent secondary spread.

                iv.    Hand Washing        (video)
                       -This section on hand washing explains why, when and how to wash and
                       dry your hands and use an alcohol-based hand rub.

                 v.    Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
                       -This is a master document covering all PPE requirements for all staff
                       involved any aspect of caring for a suspect or probable SARS case.

                           a. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) – N-95 Respirator Masks

                               -This presentation focuses on the correct use of the N-95
                               Respiratory Mask.

                           b. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) – Other PPE Equipment
                              Requirements
                              -This presentation focuses on the correct use of the other PPE
                              required for strict barrier nursing, that is, a gown, gloves,
                              goggles, cap, overshoes and apron.
                vi.    Patient Transport Patient, Family & Community Education Laboratory
                       Procedures
                       -This section looks at patient transport needs; patient, family and
                       community education about the need for isolation of SARS cases and
                       the requirements for clinical and laboratory safety when collecting and
                       handling specimens.

                vii.   Laundry & Waste Management Cleaning & Disinfection
                       -The last section looks at laundry and waste management issues
                       together with the cleaning and disifection requirements for medical and
                       patient care equipment and the environment.

SARS: Fear and Loathing of Toronto

Why is the world shunning the city? Sure SARS has hurt, writes JONATHON
GATEHOUSE, but the locals insist they're in control.

JONATHON GATEHOUSE with KEN MACQUEEN in Vancouver
PUTTING SARS IN PERSPECTIVE
When a real epidemic hits, the casualties are far greater than what we've been
seeing. Some of Canada's worst:

                                            Year          Deaths
