Does anyone believe that SARS virus has several strains that evolve?

Some people think that since many young and healthy patience die as a result
of the SARS virus that maybe there are more virulent or lethal strains of
this virus, and that maybe its also evolving, or can evolve?

Is there any evidence or ideas out there that would indicate otherwise?
There doesn't seem to be too much evidence right now that healthier people
in general have better chances to live once infected.

Reading some accounts of the suffering of some patient, this look
potentially really ugly with sickless lasting upto 1 month.
