Singapore was declared SARS free on 31 May 2003 after an intense 3month battle with it since March 2003. I remembered people were panic while SARS hit Singapore in March 2003. I had to take temperature in school almost everyday. There were 33 people who died of SARS (including Dr Ong Hok Su, Dr Alexander Chao). We remembered the painful losses and lesson learnt during that period and hope to prevent those tragedies in the future.
This video below showed 4 Singaporeans who shared their stories on SARS.
