With outbreaks in all the initial hot zones either contained or
coming under control, the World Health Organization says SARS
is clearly in decline. But the U.N. agency also cautions that
new outbreaks could still occur.
Noting that the SARS situation in many regions of China has "improved
significantly," the WHO lifts its warning against travel
to parts of the country, but the agency continues to advise that
people avoid visiting the capital, Beijing.
