EFL Teacher Dies of SARS

A 52-year old English teacher in China has become the first American victim of SARS in the Far East. James Salisbury had been teaching English at a college in the city of Sin Gen for the past year. Last Monday, he was hospitalized with pneumonia-like symptoms. His family in Utah were informed of his death by telephone on April 8th. His six-year old son Michael, who was visiting him, was initially thought to also have symptoms and was hospitalized in Hong Kong, but was later found to be clear. Salisbury and his wife also have three daughters.
