While the SARS virus began spreading in China in late 2002 and early 2003, the number of cases being reported in mainland China was drastically understated by the government. In the first week of April 2003, Jiang faxed a letter to Chinese Central Television (CCTV) reporting that fact. Although CCTV did not publish the letter, it was leaked to Western news organizations which did publish it. This letter forced the resignation of the Mayor of Beijing and the Minister of Public Health, and the Chinese government began to actively deal with the growing epidemic. Most public health experts believe that this act prevented the disease from reaching pandemic proportions.
