Re: sever acute respiratory syndrome in south asia

i fully appreciate the concern about the spread of virus to
pakistan.as a medical student and a future doctor i would have appreciated
if my colleague would have concentrated more on the role of government of
pakistan taking action in preventing the spread to virus to pakistan
rather making statement that virus could be send to pakistan because of
bad wibes between the neighbouring countries.it is a serious health issue
and we have to fight it globally without any discrimination or political
issue.i would appreciate if these sorts of political statements are edited
in future.
