Risk Factors for SARS

Risk Factors

Doctors can seldom predict why one person will develop serious symptoms of SARS and another will not. However, they do know that certain factors increase a person's chance of developing serious symptoms. People at risk for more serious SARS symptoms include:
 
  • People over the age of 65
  • People with other medical problems.
     
In fact, of the 774 SARS deaths that occurred during the 2003 outbreak, 50 percent occurred in people 65 years of age or older.
