    Following is information regarding the current WHO investigation of atypical pneumonia. Included are: a news release from the CDC, interim information and recommendations for health care providers, and text of a travelers' health alert card which will be distributed to targeted international travelers returning to the U.S.

    In response to reports of increasing numbers of cases of an atypical pneumonia that the World Health Organization (WHO) has called Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today announced several steps to alert US health authorities at local and state levels.

    CDC activated its emergency operations center on Friday, March 14, upon learning of several cases reported in Canada among travelers recently returned from Southeast Asia and their family members.
