Rome, June 4 - The discovery of several new cases
of the SARS virus in Tuscany is no cause for alarm, Italy's
Health Minister Beatrice Lorenzin said Tuesday.
"The situation is under control," Lorenzin said after
reports of at least three cases of Severe Acute Respiratory
Syndrome (SARS) virus in Tuscany.
A number of people who have been in contact with the three
patients are being monitored, but they "are all good," she
added.
The National Institute of Health, along with the national
and regional health ministries, are working together on the
situation, said Lorenzin, adding that she was in Florence to
follow the case closely.
The minister added that several other cases of SARS have
been reported across Europe.
"Therefore, there is no cause for alarmism," she said.
"People who have had contact with (the) infected are in fact all
well and this is important".
Infectious disease experts have said the three cases in
Tuscany are mild.
SARS is a virus that cannot be treated with antibiotics.
It usually causes a high fever and in the past officials
have tried to contain its spread with quarantines.
