SARS in perspective

NATIONAL POST

Mathematically speaking, a person is much more likely to die in a flood (one in 237,132), be murdered (one in 50,353), or accidentally strangle themselves in bed (one in 10,779). “The safest way to travel is in a plane,” said Emile Therien, the president of the Canada Safety Council. “But probably your chances of dying in a plane crash coming to Toronto are much greater than your chances of acquiring SARS.”
