Rome, June 5 - A new respiratory virus related to
SARS confirmed in patients in Tuscany "is under control", Health
Minister Beatrice Lorenzin told the House on Wednesday.
"Right now 60 people who have been in contact with patients
whose infection has been confirmed are being monitored and all
reported negative tests and enjoy good health," said the health
minister. "For this reason I feel like assuring parliament and
citizens that the situation is under control".
Three people are being treated in Tuscany for a
SARS-related virus.
A 45-year-old man who had recently returned from Jordan was
hospitalized with a high fever and respiratory problems,
according to health authorities.
The other two confirmed cases are a young child related to
the man and a work colleague.
Infectious disease experts have said the three cases are
mild.
SARS is a virus which cannot be treated with antibiotics.
It killed an estimated 800 people in a worldwide epidemic
10 years ago.
Some 51 new cases have been confirmed since September,
several across Europe, according to the UN health agency.
