A TAIWANESE PERFORMER PLAYS IN TAIPEI IN CELEBRATION OF W.H.O REMOVING THE
ISLAND FROM ITS SARS INFECTED LIST.
A Taiwanese performer attends a rally in Taipei on July 6, 2003, to
celebrate the World Health Organization5C's (WHO) decision to remove the
island from its SARS infected list. The World Health Organisation said on
Saturday the global outbreak of the respiratory illness SARS had been
contained as it removed Taiwan from its list of areas with recent local
transmission of the disease. However, the organisation warned that while the
containment was a milestone, countries must remain vigilant against the
re-emergence of the illness that has killed more than 800 people worldwide,
mostly in China and Hong Kong, and for which there is no simple treatment.
