New SARS virus?

Does anyone remember back a few years ago when the SARS virus hit the world? Well I read that there are now two confirmed cases of something similar  http://www.foxnews.com/health/2012/09/26/who-issues-guidance-on-new-sars-like-virus/

Do you think news reports like this make us more aware so we can be on the alert or do you think it just adds stress to our lives? I just wonder why if there are only two cases of it in the world then why is it all over the news.

Maybe it's a CYA kinda thing? I think the last statement in the article kind of points to that...
"We don't know if all cases of infections are as severe as the two cases we have currently or in fact whether there have been 2 million cases of this virus and only 2 severe cases."
