Delay before identification of virus[edit]

I remember that late in the SARS near-pandemic, the medias were still unsure on the exact cause of SARS; conflicting hypothesis were published in the newspapers, including co-infection with Chlamydophila pneumoniae and an unindentified virus. This was very confusing and stressful because people didn't know how to protect themselves. Even though the virus was formally identified on March 24 2003, it seems that the newspapers took a long time to properly inform the public. There was also a public inquiry in Canada because of the slow reaction by health officials.

Section on Viral replication[edit]

As far as I can see this article's highly technical section Viral replication is generic for coronaviruses and just repeats information that is (or should be) presented at Coronavirus#Replication. I think this article should focus on SARS-CoV specific aspects.  --Lambiam 06:04, 5 May 2009 (UTC)
