  2. 2. What are disease outbreak • Outbreak is a term used in epidemiology to describe an occurrence of disease greater than would otherwise be expected at a particular time and place. It may affect a small and localized group or impact upon thousands of people across an entire continent. Two linked cases of a rare infectious disease may be sufficient to constitute an outbreak.
  3. 3. SARS outbreaks in 2003 affected tourism in Singapore • The tourism in singapore drop as lots of people are afraid to go to singapore • There is no travel alert issued by the WHO against travel to Singapore . The country continues to be vigilant against any outbreak of SARS in other parts of the world or within the country itself. • Given that the last SARS case in the world was isolated on 22 April 2004 and with the onset of a warmer climate in the Northern Hemisphere in the coming months, Singapore 's Ministry of Health is of the view that there is currently minimal SARS-related public health threat to Singapore . As such, the authorities have ceased the temperature screening measures at Singapore 's border checkpoints.
  4. 4. Feedback • Great pictures used! A picture speaks a thousand words. • Short and concise definition of disease outbreak • The sentences in red are the valid points related to the question, the rest of the information are seemingly copied from some news article. It is not necessary to mention about the threats of SARS. • Focus more on how Tourism is being affected directly when SARS hits, eg Tourist numbers decrease drastically. Or can mention what the government is doing to intervene to help tourism growth during SARS time.
