It is reported that the Outbreak of Atypical Pneumonia is under control. It is good news. However, from the individuals ofr the city, the anxiousity don’t seems be to controlled yet.
I have a lot of friends and classmates in Guangzhou, and Shenzhen. I am concerned about their situation and worried about them. So I keep a close eye on our class BBS to see how well they are doing. But I feel even anxious when reading the pieces of posts. I have to say, most of the news are not confirmed – or I have to say, “officially” confirmed yet, but it is definitely confirmed people in Guangzhou are discussing this.

Feb 13 – “I don’t see people around me to stock rice and salt, bu I read it in newspaper”

SARS is spreading fast outside China. It doesn’t seem scary until we see the vast outbreak.
May seems so. But there is a large base of people here. It is terrible if it does spread out.
I think SARS is completely over now.
