A Pause for Breath

Since it was first diagnosed three months ago, the SARS virus has spread worldwide, infecting 10,000 people and threatening tourism in Canada and East Asia. Now, new cases of the disease appear to be on the wane, due to unprecedented cooperation between public health officials as well as draconian containment measures in some affected areas. Still, it remains to be seen how affected economies will recover from the blow dealt by SARS. And in some cities, like Beijing and Toronto, health officials are still struggling to contain new outbreaks. – YaleGlobal
