A disease that is not a significant threat to the health of the worlds population. More people die of the common cold every day than die from SARS. The media saw SARS as a cheap way to boost ratings during the time just before sweeps week in order to build up a strong viewer base. It was CONVENIENTLY reported at the same time that we were bombing Iraq into oblivion. Hmmmmmm,,, isn't it interesting how things just happen to pop up when Bush needs the country's attention focused elsewhere while he's busy raping the world........

SARs stands for Severe acute respiratory syndrome. Despite massive media attention and hype, SARs has only infected 8042 people to date and only 772 of them have resulted in death (therefore having a mortality rate of 9.6%)

The symptoms of SARs are flu like and death is caused by respiratory failure.

The human body can actually normally fight off the disease if breathing support is given, however as the disease was first discovered in Southern Asia, lack of understanding and medical care was what caused the majority of the deaths.

Despite SARs disappearing and causing very few deaths, the short media induced panic damaged the tourist trade of many Southern Asian countries significantly.
1) SARs outbreak in Southern Asia? Let's hype it up beyond what's necessary!

A growingly popular abbreviation for the phrase sorry not sorry. It is usually said in a sarcastic way, and almost never used to genuinely mean sorry. SARS is pronounced with emphasis on both the first and last s.
"Hey Saylor, are you coming out with us tonight?"
"Sorry Ab, I'll probably have a date tonight, SARS"

This is a correct use of SARS because Saylor is not serious, and won't have a date. She says this to her friends to make her seem superior, and since she says SARS they understand that she will probably come.
