The SARS coronavirus, sometimes shortened to SARS-CoV, is the virus that causes severe acute respiratory syndrome(SARS).[1] In April 16 of 2003, following the outbreak of SARS in Asia and secondary cases elsewhere in the world, the World Health Organization (WHO) issued a press release stating that the coronavirus identified by a number of laboratories was the official cause of SARS. Samples of the virus are being held in laboratories in New YorkSan FranciscoManilaHong Kong, and Toronto.

On April 12, 2003, scientists working at theMichael Smith Genome Sciences Centre inVancouver, British Columbia finished mapping the genetic sequence of a coronavirus believed to be linked to SARS. The team was led by Dr. Marco Marra and worked in collaboration with the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control and the National Microbiology Laboratory in Winnipeg, Manitoba, using samples from infected patients in Toronto. The map, hailed by the WHO as an important step forward in fighting SARS, is shared with scientists worldwide via the GSC website (see below). Dr. Donald Lowof Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto described the discovery as having been made with "unprecedented speed."[2] The sequence of the SARS coronavirus has since been confirmed by other independent groups.
