Airport clinic on alert over killer pneumonia

posted on 29/03/2003: 1425 views


Officials at the Ministry of Health have confirmed that medical staff at airport clinics are still alert despite no cases of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) having been discovered in the UAE. He added the ministry is following developments at the international level and the guidelines provided by the WHO, which is taking positive steps to identify the causes.



The ministry took measures after an emergency meeting last week and all health authorities, the Civil Aviation departments and airlines, were asked to coordinate with it and refer suspected cases. Staff at the airport clinics will remain vigilant and keep an eye on passengers coming from the countries at risk. According to a WHO statement, the world is now 12 days into an outbreak of what scientists believe is a previously unrecognised disease in humans. (The Gulf News)
