WAKE COUNTY, N.C. — Health officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say a 45-year-old Wake County man who died earlier in June from pneumonia did not have severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS).
Authorities say the Wake County man worked at the same UNC plant facility as an Orange County man who did have SARS.
However, tests officially ruled out SARS as the cause of death.
