From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

There have been two SARS outbreaks that have affected either some parts of population or most of the world. In 2002, SARS-CoV virus strain is responsible for the 2002-2004 epidemic of SARS virus which had infected over 8000 and had killed nearly 800.

The SARS-CoV-2 is responsible for the 2019-20 coronavirus pandemic. SARS-CoV-2 has a much lower case fatality ratio (CFR) than SARS-CoV, however, it is much more viable for spread. The 2019-20 pandemic has been described as the worst since the Spanish flu[1] and as the most impactful global event since World War II.[2]
