    • Treatment options may be influenced by severity of the illness
    • The majority of those affected by SARS get better in a week
    • Some may get worse, may need mechanical ventilators to breathe
    • Death rate appears to be higher for patients over 60

    Speaker Notes:

    7. SARS can be fatal, but most people get better after a week or so. Only about 6 percent of those infected with SARS have died. Treatment options include medications (e.g., steroids). Treatment is highly dependent on the severity of the illness.
