OK, just from memory it seems that the recent SARS episode that started in HK was traced to a Doctor (what kind, don’t know) from a small villiage in the interior of China. It seemed strange to me that a brand-new debilitating virus would suddenly appear at at HK hotel, and be traced to a Dr. from a remote area. Who was he meeting, Who was he reporting to, are the unspoken questions of the suspicious mind.
Now, good grief, here we are again, back in China, and a Dr. from Singapore has the SARS… Apparently from a lab he was working in.
So, you might ask, how many more of these remote labs are out there…?
The 27-year-old doctoral student who tested positive for severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in Singapore last week was probably a one-off case, according to Singaporean officials, possibly caused by an accident in the disease-research lab where he worked.
