Further research into the beginning of SARS has led to interesting discoveries that it was actually discovered in the Philippines long time ago. It was then known by a simpler name, SAR or A-SAR. Just like SARS today, it spread very rapidly through face-to-face personal contacts.

ASAR - a carrier person who may infect others.

ASAR TALAGA - a person who is very contagious; very dangerous to approach; needs attention by healthy persons only

NANG-A-A-SAR - a person who is maliciously spreading the disease.

NAASAR - a person who is infected with the disease.

NAGKA-ASARAN - the process of transmitting the disease to others.

PANG-ASAR - Any medium of spreading the disease.

NAASAR TALAGA - A person in very serious condition; needs quarantine; could be fatal.

ASARAN NA - when a group or community is already infected.

NAPIKON - a victim of ASAR who is beyond recovery; should not be touched by anybody, not even friends or relatives.
