    Type: Text and Picture Slide
    Content: [Includes photo of doctor looking at an x-ray.]

    • Age 40 or older; especially those over 65
    • Have other medical conditions (heart/liver disease)
    • Hospital worker or family member of victim

    Speaker Notes:

    5. Those who are 40 or older, especially those who are over 65, and anyone who has heart or liver disease face the greatest risk for severe disease and possible death. Healthcare workers and patients' families—those most likely to be in close contact with SARS victims—are most likely to contract the disease.
