China's underreporting its # of SARS cases...surprise surprise...Instead of isolating and containing the sickness they've allowed it to go on a little sightseeing tour around the world. Doctors reported that they were rounded up after the initial cases (more than a month before it was officially reported) and told to pretend nothing was happening--they were ordered to NOT wear any masks in the hospital, etc, so that ppl wouldn't panic. It's a wonder so many health workers are sick, huh?

Here's a link to a great NY Times article on SARS today. About fears on the West Coast and in Asian communities.
