Biography

Dr. Riley can discuss the common means of transmission for the SARS virus -- "a new variant on an old pathogen," he says. This includes airborne transmission and direct contact with an infected person. Riley says public health officials in the United States are doing the best they can to contain the spread of SARS, and that people should not panic. He says that SARS may be spreading more rapidly in Asia because of the crowded living conditions in many urban centers there.
