Notes:

It is possible for the status of a reported case to change over time. SARS is a diagnosis of exclusion. This means that whenever a known cause is found that could fully account for a patient's clinical condition, this patient should no longer be considered to be a case of SARS.

+The Chinese authorities have reported suspect and probable cases in Guangdong province. Figures are being updated.

§ Cumulative number of cases includes number of deaths.

* No documented secondary transmission in-country. No affected areas.

**One death attributed to Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of China occurred in a case medically transferred from Viet Nam.
