It looks like the SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) outbreak is getting pretty serious in Ontario, where they’ve declared a provincial emergency. Eek. I found out about this by reading the New Zealand Herald online, where it was on the front page. A little digging showed that the Boston Globe also had a story (from the Washington Post), but it was buried in the back of the A section. You’d think such news would have greater relevance in Boston than Wellington, wouldn’t you?
