The severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus or SARS-CoV is the virus responsible for causing Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), one of the deadliest coronaviruses.[1]

ME/CFS[edit | edit source]

The SARS-CoV virus causes SARS, which has then caused chronic fatigue syndrome in develop in a group of SARS survivors in Hong Kong. A syndrome resembling fibromyalgia was found to have developed immediately after SARS in a group of SARS survivors in Toronto, Canada.[2][3]

ME/CFS - An acronym that combines myalgic encephalomyelitis with chronic fatigue syndrome. Sometimes they are combined because people have trouble distinguishing one from the other. Sometimes they are combined because people see them as synonyms of each other.
