Total cases as per data were about 8086 cases globally and 774 deaths, out of 8086 cases 5327 were in Mainland China.
The treatment too was very similar and so was isolation and infection prevention techniques.
In 2002 China and the world might not have anticipated something like SARS but in 2019-2020 China has experience of dealing with SARS.
Therefore more and more people are falling ILL to the viral disease.
Even cancer can be termed curable but would one afford a cancer epidemic?
You have to ask people to stay indoor so that they dont infect more people and dont get infected either.
It being curable is not a great relief if it continues to be spread across.
