    This update reviews the current situation and the surveillance and diagnostic recommendations for both severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and avian influenza A (H5N1). The updates have been combined because the clinical presentation and travel history of persons with avian influenza A (H5N1) or SARS coronavirus (SARSCoV) infection may overlap. The recommendations for SARS have been revised downward because the most recent SARS activity in China has been contained. The recommendations for avian influenza A (H5N1) remain at the enhanced level established in February 2004. As detailed in the recommendations below, vigilance in the clinical setting for SARS and avian influenza (H5N1) requires that health-care providers consistently obtain international travel and other exposure risk information for persons who have specified respiratory symptoms.
