The Ministry of Health has adopted all precautionary measures to prevent the spread of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) into the country, according to an expert. "The ministry has joined the international Communicable Disease Committee (CDC), functioning under the umbrella of the World Health Organisation (WHO), in devising a contingency plan to probe the causes of and treatment for the fatal pulmonary infection resulting from the epidemic," said Dr Iman Izzat Basuni, paediatrician at the Central Preventive Medicine Department, yesterday in a lecture on 'Developments in Severe Pulmonary Infections' at the premises of the UAE General Women's Union, according to the +Khaleej Times.”

The lecture, which was organised by the federation in cooperation with the ministry, was held under the patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, Wife of the President and President of GWU, to increase public awareness on the epidemic and shed light on steps taken by the ministry to prevent the disease from being imported into the UAE.
