A man in the southern Guangdong Province of China has Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), the United Nations lead health agency said today after tests confirmed diagnosis of the disease, which does not appear to be spreading.

Last year SARS had all the potential advantages of a new worst case lethal global pandemic. What a difference a year makes. It is not the existance of trustworthy tests which will make a difference, it is that now health authorities know which antiseptics work with SARS and which don't. That was the big problem last year, some contamination prevention procedures in hospitals used antiseptics that didn't work with SARS.
