For the people old enough to remember it, how did we get rid of SARS?

Bad comparison - SARS had more visible symptoms, victims were much more easily identified (few asymptomatic carriers), and more severe. Therefore it spread at a significantly slower rate as it was closer to the standard contagion playbook

SARS only spread after you showed symptoms. High fever was almost universal. I remember some airports even started to have IR cameras to find people with high temperatures

If you got SARS, you’d be a zombie within 2 days, so containment was a lot less complex - unlike with COVID19 where people will travel around and about for 14 days before showing symptoms. Also if you got SARS you were F’d, so you’d be dead, not walking around with a mild cold.

Containment

It was traced and contained. Very easy to tell if you had it, and lots of people died so they didn't pass it on.

I've been in marraige since 6 yrs. Since d beginning, DH used to be upset with me abt managing responsibilities. We've had ugly fights and at the end of each fight, I'd convince myself to do better each day. But in this journey, I've lost myself. I am much more focused but I am no more the same happy person and I can't enjoy moments of life. DH is upset with me cos I always look stressed. All the bad memories are flashing in my head sinc morning and I feel unappreciated :( feeling super low!
