WASHINGTON -- The World Health Organization April 29 lifted its
travel advisory for Toronto, saying the magnitude of probable SARS
cases declined; 20 days elapsed since the last cases of "community
transmission occurred;" and there have been no new confirmation of
exported SARS cases there.
According to WHO, Canadian authorities provided assurances that
"pro-active screening measures" will be taken at airports.
Toronto, meanwhile, is still classified by WHO as an "affected
area," a status that Vietnam shed April 28.
WHO travel advisories remain in place for parts of China,
including Beijing, Hong Kong, and Guandong and Shanxi
