    "Since February 2003, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has received reports of severe acute respiratory syndrome (also known as atypical pneumonia) from various parts of the world, including Hong Kong. In Hong Kong, a number of health care workers and community members have been affected by the disease. Locally, the Department of Health, the Hospital Authority, the University of Hong Kong and the Chinese University of Hong Kong are working closely together to identify the cause of the disease and to control its spread. The Department of Health also communicates regularly with the WHO about the latest developments in the control and prevention of atypical pneumonia globally. [quote fr. web site April 15, 2003]
