A man in the southern Guangdong Province of China has Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), the United Nations lead health agency said today after tests confirmed diagnosis of the disease, which does not appear to be spreading.

The male patient, a 32-year-old television producer, is said to be improving and in stable condition, according to Dr. Julie Hall, Communicable Disease Surveillance and Response Coordinator for the World Health Organization (WHO) in China.

“The contacts that he has had have been traced and the 81 people that have been identified have been followed up and they are all said to be well,” she said in an interview with UN Radio. “So at this moment in time in China we have one confirmed case of SARS; however [it] has been isolated and as far as we can tell there is no ongoing transmission to human beings.”
