China's Health Ministry has launched a plan for fighting SARS.
Any epidemic situation will be categorized into three grades-the especially serious, serious and general.
The Central Health Ministry will establish a rapid response medical team to deal with an especially serious situation, which effects two or more than two provinces.
In addition, special medical teams will be set up to respond to any outbreak and the speed of diagnosis will be improved.
Health Ministry also has managed to stockpile and update equipment for curbing the spread of SARS at designated hospitals.
