Yes, there are apparently more new cases here with up to 1000 people quarantined. Initially 5 suspect cases and then now up to 20 suspect cases. Although not confirmed as SARS. Shocking news when we have just started to get back to normal and have really only been 1 week without the masks. The patients involved are traced back to a rehab hospital and possible transmission from a missed SARS case which presented as post op pnemonia.
It's worrisome news, it's possible more nurses and health care workers have been infected.
