NIZHNY NOVGOROD, April 16 (RIA Novosti) - The Chinese
woman who died on Wednesday on a Moscow-bound train was
suffering from acute respiratory viral infection (ARVI),
investigators said on Thursday.
Earlier reports said the woman could have died of double
pneumonia or Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), a
respiratory disease that can be spread through the air.
"The autopsy has shown that the death of the Chinese
national occurred as a result of acute respiratory viral
infection, pulmonary and cerebral edema. Blood samples have
been sent to Moscow for tests," a statement said.
