In April 2012 I reported about a SARS breakout in Jordan at my local hospital Hawuz and then in September of the same year the UK reported about a man who had acute respiratory illness resembling SARS and now there are four more cases of SARS like symptoms in Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The fear in September was that the coming Hajj season would be greatly affected by this SARS virus as it can pass through the air.
So now we have six cases confirmed by the WHO (World Health Organization) and two reported death from both reportings.
Recently there is one new confirmed case in Qatar and three new cases in Saudi Arabia with one death. In the same Saudi family two other members had similar symptoms and one died. Until further tests are done, it can't be said if they had SARS or not.Symptoms of this SARS like virus include: cough, fever, difficulty in breathing and shortness of breath.
