SARS Found in Henan

April 18. It is reported by the official newspaper that SARS cases were found in central China’s Henan province. They are returning workers in Zhumadian, Nanyang and Kaifeng. The cases were found on April 16 and 17.

I summarize the situation by the official announcement – actually, the news report is always treated as official announcement since if the officials does not approve, the news cannot come out regarding these sensitive topics:

SARS Hainan: None

SARS Sichuan: 7 cases, 2 died

SARS Jilin: Two suspected case

The latest information on the official website of Ministor of Health is still the data of April 7:
